Lakewood after school program could close

After parents protested the closure of four after school programs run by the city Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department in May, one could be closed due to low enrollment.

City Manager Rad Bartlam reported in his online weekly update that Lakewood Elementary  only has 13 students enrolled in the after school program. Attendance needs to double for the program to be cost-efficient.

The lack of participtation is surprising considering parents protested loudly at the prospect of losing the program back in May. Lodi Unified rallied for donations to save the after school programs in May.
