Liberty Center is currently experiencing problems with the alert notification system utilizing services from Alert Solutions. Like many districts in the area, we converted to this system two years ago, because it fully integrated with our PowerSchool Student Information System. This move was made because we could obtain attractive consortium pricing with fellow school districts and because it was closely integrated with PowerSchool, therefore, we could obtain more accurate calling information. While we did realize these benefits, Alert Solutions has been consistently slow or has failed to deliver notifications. While we are working to resolve the ongoing problems of notification delivery from Alert Solutions we are also engaged in a search to replace this system so we can properly notify you of schedule changes, delays and cancelations. We regret the inconveniences this has caused and ask for your patience as we diligently seek corrective measures. In the meantime, please tune into your local TV stations: WTOL Channel 11 and WTVG Channel 13. Also, WNDH, WMTR and K-100 radio stations. We will keep you informed of any significant developments.
Annabel (Baker) Norman Donation
In appreciation and gratitude, the Liberty Center Board of Education gratefully accepted a donation of $250,000 to Liberty Center Schools from the Annabel (Baker) Norman Estate at the December 16th Board of Education Meeting. These funds will be used for a permanent project, possibly related to the upcoming building project.
M. Annabel (Baker) Norman, 98, of Zanesville, Ohio, passed away on October 13, 2013. She was born on December 21, 1914 in Liberty Center, Ohio, a daughter of the late Henry and Luella (Johnson) Baker. Annabel was a 1932 graduate of Liberty Center Schools. She was employed for 10 years as the Superintendent’s Secretary for the Liberty Center Board of Education. Later on, she worked for the Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus. From 1960-1974 she and her husband, Joseph, owned and operated the Burger Chef stores of Zanesville. She was a 50 year member of the Order of Easter Star Pacific Chapter #63 in Liberty Center and served as Worthy Matron in 1936, and was a member of Order of the Eastern Star Muskingum Chapter #485 in Zanesville. Also, she was a life member of Soroptimist International of Zanesville.
The Board of Education and I were very pleasantly surprised at this generous gift given to Liberty Center Schools. I would also like to thank Brian Baker and Janet Zachrich for meeting with us to present Annabel’s gift and to help us get to know about this generous woman who left such a wonderful legacy to students at Liberty Center Local Schools.

Beginning with the 2013-14 school year Liberty Center High School students will be investigating the Liberty Center Local School’s history. Mr. Patrick O’Dwyer will be teaching a new class which will be of interest to everyone in Liberty Center. The class is called Liberty Center Local History and our students will get an opportunity to interview, hear stories, and see images of what life was like for those who walked the halls before them. Our vision for this class is to give our students access and knowledge of their local history, while we also produce a product to share with the entire Liberty Center community. ...Read More
