The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) was established in 1988 under Section 612, Subdivision 6 of the Education Law to address the significant dropout rate among New York’s youth. Within Chenango and Otsego County, the LPP Program has been serving youth for over 30 years and is a cooperative, twelve-month, program involving SUNY Morrisville, Bainbridge Guilford, Morris, Norwich, Otselic Valley, Sherburne and Unadilla Valley Central Schools. It is part of a statewide program designed to provide support and/or services that will encourage middle and high school students to not only graduate high school, but to be prepared to enter college or vocational training.
