ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — This Good Question covers one of our state schools.
A viewer named Beatrice asked News10NBC’s Brennan Somers: "How come SUNY Geneseo won't take applications for new students who want to go to the LIVES program?"
For starters, LIVES stands for Learning Independence, Vocational, and Educational Skills. It's a four-year track that offers students with disabilities the chance to become more independent while learning in an inclusive community.
The goal is to give them all the right skills for life after their time is up at the school.
And to answer the question from our viewer- the staff at SUNY Geneseo say applications are not on hold. The LIVES team continues to take in students.
This year they weren't on campus due to COVID restrictions in place. It is a small class, about 8 to 12 students a year in the programs. This runs on the academic schedule. The deadline to apply for the next round of students is April 15, 2021.
