  • LHS Wins the VDOE Second Year Innovation Grant

    Despite starting off the 2020-2021 school year in the midst of a pandemic, Liberty High School worked extremely hard to receive the opportunity to bring light and new opportunities into what seems to be a rocky start. On August 11th, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, James Lane, announced that Fauquier County, specifically Liberty High School, is one of the thirteen school divisions that will receive a state grant to develop or implement innovative programs that promote Virginia’s 5 C’s (critical thinking, creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and citizenship). While five school divisions will receive a $50,000 first-year innovation planning grant, Liberty specifically will be amongst four other school divisions that will receive a $ 50,000 second year-innovation implementation grant, while the other four school divisions in this specific category will split a fifth of a $50,000 grant.
