Liberty schools plan for future with online classes


Liberty’s online school aims to begin classes in the fall.

The Mahoning County Educational Service Center is partnering with Liberty School District to create the Leopard Cyber Academy, the district’s online school.

Liberty Superintendent Joseph Nohra said this is a step toward being a future-ready school. Nohra said the school board is strategically planning how to better serve students in traditional and nontraditional programs.

The board will vote to approve the program Monday, but Nohra said board members have expressed support for the LCA.

Students can begin enrolling once the board votes for approval.

Board member Calvin Jones said he is fully behind being a future-ready school “connecting students with how we think the world will be in three to five years.”
