LIBERTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS STAFF,
You make LPS shine! Thank you for all you do to make every day of the school year incredible for our students - you instruct, inspire, encourage, strengthen and prepare.
The Liberty Education Foundation supports you through offering grants that allow you to implement classroom projects, both large and small, that you are eager to implement but are outside the budget. We are excited to introduce Learner Led Grants which allows students to initiate projects based on their interests and curiosities for their classrooms or schools! Below are details and links to our different grants.
Thank you to the staff members who have already supported this year’s staff campaign. All gifts regardless of size allow us to fulfill our mission. Sign up today!

Fueling the ideas and dreams of our learners is one of the best ways to promote lifelong learning and innovation in the classroom. For this reason, we have introduced student-initiated grant opportunities. Students may request $100-$1,000 to create or enhance a learning experience. All students will be encouraged to recruit a staff ambassador as they collaborate with their peers to develop unique projects for their classrooms or schools. Groups will put together creative video proposals for this fun competition.
