Flip This School: How LHS Renovated Its System Through a State-Wide Redesign

Thursday February 11, 2021
12:30 - 1:30 PM
Lecture 5

In this series of “episodes,” school leaders will take participants through the process of assessing and renovating an outdated, cookie-cutter, school model to a custom-made system that functions to meet the changing needs of students and demands of the workforce. They will share unforeseen challenges, pitfalls, and triumphs that come with demolishing a landmark. Additionally, they will share their progress toward achieving their vision to guarantee each graduate has an Individual Plan of Study, a certificate or acceptance letter for the post-secondary plans, an internship, and engagement in school and community organizations. Finally, participants will also learn about the Kansas State Department of Education’s School Redesign initiative, of which Liberal High School is a founding member. Connections will be made from the LEA level to the SEA level as Kansas seeks to redesign our educational system, before and during a global pandemic.
