The Hadley-Luzerne Central School District is proud to announce it received the 2022 Community Partner Award from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County (CCE). 


Interim Director for CCE Warren County John Bowe recognized the district for collaborating with CCE to provide 20 programs to 90 students through the district’s Extended School Day program during the 2021-22 school year. CCE Warren County introduced students to seasonally appropriate topics including archery, campfire safety, knot tying, soup making, Leave No Trace, and more. 


“We decided to partner with CCE Warren County because they provide an exemplary service to our students, and we have a history of working with them even beyond the Extended School Day program,” said Hadley-Luzerne Special Education Director Robert Mark. “We wanted students to have a variety of experiences that they would learn from and enjoy and that wouldn’t typically be offered during a regular school day.” 


The Hadley-Luzerne Central School District continues to collaborate with CCE Warren County to offer programs to students after school almost every Thursday. 


Funding for the Extended Day School program and CCE Warren County programs comes from the Federal Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund allocated by the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 to address learning loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


“CCE Warren County has been a tremendous partner to us,” said HLCSD Superintendent Burgess Ovitt. “We truly appreciate all they do for our students and teachers and thank them for this award.”
