CHILDREN AREN’T BORN WITH A SUCCESS MANUAL

It’s a good thing our PPS Parent Engagement Programs (PEP) are a great alternative.

The Parents for Public Schools Parent Engagement Programs (PEP) provide parents guidance for becoming effective coaches and advocates for their children’s learning. These evidence-based training programs were developed by child development specialists and education experts under the direction and oversight of PPS.
