Lake Orion Community Schools' unique Parent University program provides parents an opportunity to participate in their child's education.
The program offers many different topics and the 2018-19 school year will feature 13 unique sessions, each targeted to a different level (elementary, middle school, high school.)
The 2018-19 schedule is also listed on the right side of this page to be downloaded as a calendar.
Each of the 2017-18 school year presentations offered a theme:
- Make and Take for Early Literacy (Grades: K-1)
- Growth Mindset and Making Sense of the “New Math” presentation (2-5)
- Building Early Literacy through Play - Have you ever asked, “What is my child learning? He plays all day!” (Pre-K and pre-school)

One offshoot, about increasing literacy, drew some widespread attention last fall.
