Leveraging partnerships to bring diversity and equity into the conversation: Liberty 53 Public Schools has partnered with community groups like the Department of Justice, NAACP, and Clay County African American Legacy, Inc. to increase community and district awareness and opportunity in diversity and equity.

Making project-based learning a pillar of the student learning experience: Through a district program called EPiC (Every Person Inspired to Create), students benefit from a team-taught learning environment that incorporates project-based learning in all content areas throughout an extended school year.

Developing student agency through challenges: Through the “UnSchool Challenge,” students are afforded multiple opportunities throughout the year to participate in a “Reverse Internship Design Challenge.” Specifically, the UnSchool Challenge provides contextual learning, learner agency, soft skills development, authentic audience, career exploration, design thinking, networking, and portfolio development.
