Dear Parent/Guardian:

I am excited to inform you that SUNY Sullivan is implementing the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP), a day school and summer program designed to promote college readiness and career development among eligible high school students who need some additional assistance to help them meet their goals.  We will be working with the school districts of Fallsburg, Liberty and Monticello, and have a great lineup of community partners, including the Hurleyville Makers’ Lab, Catholic Charities, and Sullivan Agencies Leading Together (SALT).

LPP is a New York State Education Department funded program.  It serves students who need assistance in completing homework, preparing for tests, getting organized, and thinking about and planning ahead for life after graduation.  In an effort to keep students engaged in school and graduating, we will have a tutor/mentor in the school with whom your child will be working on a regular basis.  We will provide tutoring and mentoring, help with goal setting, informational presentations on college and career preparation, job shadowing, and college and career site visits.

We also provide opportunities for skill development in areas of leadership, entrepreneurship, and service learning. As the parent/guardian of a LPP student, you will be invited to attend workshops on such topics as college admissions, financial aid, preparing for college, and motivating youth toward academic achievement.  You may also ask to be included as a chaperone in any enrichment trips the students take; we will make every effort to accommodate you.  Once a student is in LPP, they are eligible to take advantage of our services through graduation.

We are excited at the prospect of working with you and your child.  Please take a few moments to fill out the accompanying application.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call me at 845-434-5750 x4264, or email me at LPP@sunysullivan.edu.

Sincerely,

Ruta Cole, Director, Liberty Partnership Program
