GCU & Lakewood Schools Work Together to Benefit Students
By Lois Rogers
Some 700 parents and children filled the Lakewood Middle School auditorium for the second annual orientation and celebration of the Lakewood Together Parent Academy on November 11, 2013. The academy is part of Lakewood Together, a joint effort between Georgian Court and the Lakewood Board of Education. The collaboration shares university resources with the Lakewood School District while creating educational opportunities for university students.
The academy scheduling, as explained by F. Thomas Crawley, Ed.D., assistant dean of the GCU School of Education, mirrors the overall approach of the program, which aims to create a strong, lasting partnership, melding the needs of the school community—including parents, students and local teachers—with those of the university.
