    Out of District Testing 

    Liberty Public Schools offers testing to students that live in the attendance area but are not currently enrolled. This site contains testing information for students and parents to utilize the district assessment diagnostic measure for PEAK and or other purposes. Liberty Public Schools offers specific testing dates for out of district students in the areas of Math and Reading. 

    If your child is not currently enrolled, but living in the attendance area of Liberty Public Schools, proof of residency must be provided prior to testing.  Acceptable proofs: Utility bill, Lease/Rental Agreement, Settlement Statement.   Please send to: lisa.johnston@lps53.org prior to test date.

    *Average testing time is around 2 hours. Please send your student with a book in the event they finish early.
