The purpose of the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is to support at-risk youth in grades 5-12 toward the goal of completing high school and seeking post-secondary education or meaningful employment after graduation. LPP is a voluntary program designed to provide students with a range of services to improve their current academic performance and potential for success, through grant funding from the Research Foundation of State University of New York. LPP is one of the outreach services of SUNY Cortland.
Currently, there are 27 Cincinnatus Central School students enrolled in the LPP Program. Services include: case management and counseling, mentoring, tutoring, enrichment activities and field trips, and parent/guardian communication. This year’s LPP mentors are Mrs. Annette Januszka, Miss Kim Olszewski, Mr. John Protheroe, Mrs. Pam Roelen, Mrs. Dannette Tomlinson, and Mrs. Beth Wood.
LPP mentors and students assist with several community service projects at Cincinnatus, such as organizing the “Bright Red Bookshelf” in the school lobby. They also collect Campbell’s Labels for Education, which are redeemed for a variety of school supplies, and pull tabs from aluminum cans, which are donated to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities and Shriner's Hospitals for Children.
For more information about the LPP Program, contact Mrs. Tomlinson (Special Education Secretary) or Mrs. Heffernan (Director of Instruction).
