    The Why: 

    Having a FLEX time at LHS will enable us to provide students with levels of autonomy and choice, while also teaching lessons about responsibility and time management skills. 

    Info:

    A team composed of teachers, counselors, security personnel, administrators and other staff worked very hard over the summer to design and define how the flex period will live at Liberty High School. In starting a flex period at LHS it will enable us to provide students with levels of autonomy and choice, while also teaching lessons about responsibility and time management skills. Some of the programming options for the 2021-2022 are as follows:

     

    • Academic support via Academic labs in Language Arts, Math and Science

    • Opportunities for exploration in our LMC 

    • Finish homework assignments

    • Study for upcoming exams

    • Engage in tutoring with peer tutors and possibly offering A+ Tutoring opportunities

    • Engage in ACT preparation sessions

    • Attend/travel to Early College, internships or shadowships

    • Meet with counselors

    • Visit with college or military representatives

    • Read a book or practice mindfulness exercises

    • Meet with professionals regarding resume building, interview skills, etc.

    • Participate in programming in support of the Graduate Profile

     

    Some of the key logistical components of the flex period are:

     

    • Students currently have a flex period assigned on their schedule.

    • Schedule changes based on flex period alone will not be considered. 

    • The Commons will be used for the majority of students on flex. 

    • The Commons will be split into two areas: a quiet zone and a collaboration zone. Blended learning students can also utilize these two areas.

    • Students will have the ability to sign up for academic labs in Language Arts, Math and Science. Students can also sign up to access the LMC during their flex period.

    • My Conference Time will be used to sign up for academic labs and the LMC. Students will be able to sign up one week in advance.

    • Students flex periods will be added to the Liberty High School 2021-2022 Student ID. 

    • Kiosks will be utilized during flex periods. If a student wants to access any area other than the commons they will need to scan their Student ID. Kiosk will be located throughout the building and near academic labs and the LMC.

    • All students will participate in a flex orientation the first week of school and are required to attend. Students will report to the auditorium and no travel will not be allowed during flex period.

    • After the first week of school, 9th and 10th grade students are required to stay on campus during their Flex. 

    • After the first week of school, 11th and 12th grade students in good academic and behavioral standing can leave campus during their flex period after the first week of school, but only if they have a completed parent form.  

    • Please complete this form if you give your student permission to leave campus during their flex period.  LPS HS Off-Campus Permission Form

    • Students must scan their Students ID at one of the Kiosks before leaving campus. The students will be required to leave out of assigned exits and only allowed to reenter the building through the main entrance. 

    • Outside food is not permitted on campus. 

    • No leaving campus on Wednesday due to an abbreviated schedule. 

    • All attendance policies apply to students returning from off campus. Students are expected to return to campus before their next assigned class. Students that are late will be assigned a tardy and students that are more than 15 minutes late will be assigned an unverified absence. 

    • Flex period privileges can be revoked at any time for academic performance, attendance or behavioral issues.
