“The Little Falls City School District strives to inspire and empower our students to reach their full academic, physical and emotional potential in a safe and supportive environment. In the fall of 2021, the Little Falls City School District became part of the Connected Community Schools initiative which has prospered, providing support to students, faculty, and staff, engaging several students and families, linking to services and supports, and ensuring that the student’s basic needs are being met so they can simply engage and be successful in their education.

Little Falls CSD School Superintendent, Dr. Keith Levatino, Connected Community School’s Co-Leader Danielle Martin, SUNY Polytechnic Institute Interim Dean of the College of Health Sciences Dr. Joanne Joseph, and Daneli Partners Chief Executive Officer, David Casullo are pleased to announce a recent development of a formal partnership between the 4 entities to enhance the resiliency of our students and families under the Connected umbrella. This partnership will not only provide the students of Little Falls an opportunity to enhance their individual social and emotional learning, but it will also provide hands-on experience with civic responsibility and exposure to higher education. Additionally, the initiative will provide SUNY Poly students with an opportunity to research and further explore their career interests.

“This collaborative partnership between SUNY Poly, Connected Community Schools, Daneli Partners, and the Little Falls City School District will help meet and support the academic, social, and emotional needs for the students of Little Falls and SUNY Poly,” Dr. Keith Levatino.

This partnership will entail a field experience opportunity for SUNY Poly students to work alongside our Connected Community Schools Site Coordinator, Sue Wallace-Eaton, SEALs Coordinator Sarah Phillips, Little Falls CSD Principal LeeAnn Dooley, and the faculty/staff. Together, the team will support students/families and participate in the creation and facilitation of the Civic Responsibility Committee, which will focus on a group of students that will be creating projects in the school and community to enhance student learning, engagement, and motivation.”
