Parent Engagement Program and Academy

The Parent Engagement Program (PEP) is a parent leadership class designed to increase positive parent engagement and enhance school-parent collaboration. PEP classes are conducted by nationally trained  facilitators and cover topics such as school curriculum, data, testing and leadership. The next PEP class will commence in the fall of 2018.

The Parent Engagement Program (PEP) Academy is a yearlong series of public education related workshops, each approximately two hours in length, offered during lunch and evening hours. The topics for PEP Academy depend on current educational issues and community interest, but may include workshops such as college and career readiness, digital learning, and kindergarten preparation and readiness. PEP Academy will be held during the 2017-2018 school year.
