LPS Named as a Cognia System of Distinction

Cognia, the global school improvement organization that helps grow learners, teachers, and leaders, has announced its list of Schools of Distinction among Cognia accredited schools and districts, and Liberty Public Schools has made the list! The Schools of Distinction earn this recognition based on the results of Cognia’s rigorous Accreditation Engagement Review process. 

During the 2021-2022 school year, Cognia conducted approximately 1,500 school engagement reviews for accreditation. This year, 96 schools and 38 systems in 34 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and nine countries are recognized. The number of institutions reviewed and those that earn this designation vary from year to year. Winners carry the designation for one year.

“Congratulations to the 2022 Schools and Systems of Distinction for demonstrating excellence in education in meeting the Cognia Performance Standards,” said Cognia President and CEO Dr. Mark A. Elgart. “Based on the results of their 2021–2022 accreditation reviews, each of these schools and systems demonstrated evidence of growth in learning, a healthy culture for learning, engaging and high-quality instructional environments, and effective leadership for learning.”
 
"This recognition is a testament to the hard work and passion put forth by our students, staff, families, and community," said LPS Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Tucker.  "We are proud to be a part of this designation, and fully understand that it is truly a team effort."
