NU Formalizes Partnerships With Niagara Falls, Lew-Port School Districts

In Announcements, by , on July 1st, 2016

A memorandum of understanding signed Thursday formalized longstanding partnerships between Niagara University and the Niagara Falls and Lewiston-Porter school districts.

Dr. Timothy Ireland, NU’s interim provost, signed the MOUs with Mark R. Laurrie and Paul J. Casseri, the superintendents for the Niagara Falls and Lew-Port school districts, respectively.

Niagara University will be signing a similar agreement in the very near future with the Niagara Wheatfield Central School District.

Facilitation of the agreements on the university’s campus is undertaken by Dr. Chandra Foote, dean of NU’s College of Education.

Broadly speaking, the collaborations are intended to positively impact P-12 student learning, especially for those in greatest need, by improving the quality of teaching, support services and school leadership for pre-service, novice and veteran educators.
