As a school leader, I have the privilege of walking alongside parents, students, and faculty who are all aiming at the true, the good, the beautiful, and the perfect.  Admittedly we are not perfect, but aiming at perfection has become a hallowed calling and I count myself blessed to be a part of Liberty every day.  JEnna Allen Assistant Principal Plato Campus


 

Equal Employment Opportunity and Unlawful Harassment

LCS is dedicated to the principles of equal-employment opportunity (EEO). LCS will recruit, hire, train, promote, and compensate its employees based upon factors such as work quality, behavior, training, and experience. We prohibit unlawful discrimination against applicants or employees on the basis of age 40 and over, race (including traits historically associated with race, such as hair texture, length or protected hairstyles), sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, skin color, religion, national origin, disability, military status, genetic information, or any other status protected by applicable state or local law.

Employment Benefits

Pay is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications. Benefits offered for full-time employees include health benefits, paid vacation, personal days, paid holidays, and enrollment in the state retirement system (PERA). Children will receive enrollment priority if a parent is an employee at the time of enrollment. Liberty Common School prides itself on providing valuable professional-development opportunities for staff throughout the year including beginning each year with 4-5 days of content-specific professional development.

As a charter school, Liberty employs all instructors, administrators, and support staff on an “at will” basis.  All employment contracts are individually negotiated with each instructor. This means Liberty instructors are hired on a truly professional basis (not on a union-wage scale) earning compensation commensurate with their contribution to the organization and professional growth as determined by thorough and routine professional evaluations.

Annual pay raises are a direct function of demonstrated classroom performance and institutional leadership. Holding a state teacher license is not required for employment at our school.
