I have not seen any of the wonderful attributes that were supposed to be present in the Liberty School District. I see the children herded into large classrooms without the individualized attention that they need. Special needs kids are labeled and treated differently. Also, many of the practices of this school system are communistic, including the grading system.
My special needs daughter started at L&C, then to Kellybrook, and then we had the misfortune of moving out of state for 3 years. After dealing with schools who absolutely have no clue, we made the decision to not only move back into the LPS, but to get our daughters back into Kellybrook. We didn't even entertain the idea of another district, or even another school within LPS. The current principal and nurse are new to us, but there was no arguing or excessive new paperwork needed to make sure that my daughter has all the services available to her that she needs. Trust me when I say that you don't know bad until you have moved outside of this state/district.
I have dealt with numerous days that my daughter has come home crying and sad , depressed becase of this school admisitration and their idea of taking care of the problem is terrible. I told the teacher and nothing happened!!!! She listened as I said what I needed to but this school does NOT deal with special needs children I believe and agree with the 1st concerned parent! my daughter is bullied everyday and pushed and shoved around....where are the teachers and what are they doing. we are now moving to Lewis and Clark!
