Education 2020 to Conduct Community Survey

Thursday, June 13, 2019

Author and educator Ivan Fitzwater once said, Education 2020 Graphic featuring Graduation cap.“The future of the world is in my classroom today.”

Every teacher in the Liverpool Central School District can tell you that Fitzwater’s sentiment is 100 percent true – in fact the district’s mission says it all – “Preparing our Students for Tomorrow… Today.”

Research shows, however, that students attending Liverpool schools right now will more than likely be hired as adults for jobs that don’t exist today. With that in mind, the district’s Education 2020 Committee has explored the future of education in the district and the ever-changing needs of students.

For the last two months the committee has shared its efforts with the Liverpool community by hosting two listening sessions and sending a number of e-mails focusing on a variety of topics, such as the future job market and enrollment changes, as well as social and emotional challenges.

The district’s Education 2020 Committee would now like to gather the community’s thoughts on the district’s future by conducting a survey. 

Now through July 1, community members can participate in the online survey by clicking here. Topics to be explored include program opportunities, class sizes, grade reconfiguration, facility use & costs, and mental health & safety. A similar survey was conducted with LCSD employees in November 2018 and some of the data collected during that survey is included in the community survey.

Those unable to complete the survey online can complete a paper copy of the survey at any LCSD school building or the Liverpool Public Library.

For more information regarding the committee’s efforts or the community survey, contact the Office of the Deputy Superintendent at 315-622-7148.
