Stronger Schools Begin with Innovative Leadership.
“I have extensive and diverse experience working in education and volunteering and partnering with community leaders and businesses. My background has allowed me to see firsthand what is and is not working in education. It has also shown me the disconnect that exists between our schools, central office, and our community. It has become my passion to bring my experience and insight to the school board.”
- Liberty Leavitt
Empower Our Schools
Liberty Leavitt believes principals, teachers, families, and community members are best suited to make school-based decisions – a cookie-cutter method for all schools simply won’t work.
Concentrate More Funding in Our Classrooms
Liberty Leavitt will use her experience to identify where we are missing the mark on the budget and find ways to reduce the size and scope of the central office to get more funding into our classrooms.
Learn, Adapt & Improve
Liberty Leavitt’s wide breadth of experience has taught her the value of analyzing and learning from successful schools, both in and out of our district, and finding ways to partner and implement what they are doing in our schools.
Focus on Equity in Education
Liberty Leavitt believes every child deserves the same opportunity to succeed. Liberty will focus on equity in education, work to identify where we are missing the mark in low-performing, under-resourced schools, and fight for the necessary changes to improve the quality of education for all students.
