Coffee With the Community

  • Returning for an eighth year, Liberty Public Schools will host monthly opportunities for the community to learn more about various events taking place in the district. These one-hour sessions will normally take place in the Board Room of the District Administration Center, 8 Victory Lane, Liberty, with noted periodic venue changes.  Superintendent Jeremy Tucker will be in attendance to take questions from the audience and update those present with district news. This is also a time of open discussion and presentation from a district representative about that month’s specified topic.
