NYSSBA Recognizes Liverpool’s Education 2020 Initiative

The New York State School Boards Association will present the Liverpool Central School District with its Champions of Change award in recognition of the district’s Education 2020 initiative.

The Champions of Change award recognizes innovative programs in school districts across the state and pays tribute to the people who create them. 

As part of the Education 2020 initiative, the Liverpool Central School District reconfigured grades and buildings to allow the district to provide more opportunities for students and staff, including mental health support, reading support, English as a New Language (ENL) support, instructional resources, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math (STEAM) opportunities, Career Technical Education (CTE) opportunities and Professional Development. Overall, the adjustments were made so that the district can best meet the needs of its students.

At the middle school level, the district has provided new pathway electives that include Food Tech (FACS), Entrepreneurship (FACS), Future Educators, Studio Arts (Fine Arts), Theatre (Fine Arts), Music Production (Fine Arts), Material Processing (Technology), Robotics (Technology) and Media Arts (Technology). At the high school level, new CTE programs and/or post-secondary opportunities are now offered in Drone Technology, Business Administration, Media Arts, Early Childhood Education, Hospitality & International Foods, and Pre-Apprenticeship for Trades.

“Liverpool Central School District teachers, staff, administrators and parents worked tirelessly over the last several years to plan and implement the changes that were a part of the Education 2020 initiative,” said Superintendent of Schools Daniel G. Henner. “We are honored to be recognized by NYSSBA and we will continue to implement innovative student educational opportunities into the future.”

A representative from NYSSBA will attend an upcoming Liverpool CSD Board of Education meeting to present a banner recognizing the district’s accomplishments.
