  • Parents as Educational Partners (PEP) Program

    The mission of the LCPS Parents as Educational Partners (PEP) Program is to provide LCPS school sites and school-based staff continual opportunities to engage and cultivate meaningful relationships with families, ultimately, strengthening crucially important home-school partnerships.

    The PEP Program is designed to provide resources, services, and information to the families of English Learner students. PEP is intended to be a safe space for families to be engaged and learn; and be uplifted in their learning. Ultimately, PEP should provide school-based staff with reciprocal opportunities to learn from the families of their English Leaner students. Every family is deeply valued in the PEP space.

    The PEP Program is broken down into 8 curriculum units that aims to increase knowledge about the United States & LCPS school system, while also deepening the understanding of strategies that can be used to help positively impact student academic achievement and outcomes.

    School-based PEP Partner teams represent LCPS staff who are dedicated to the ongoing hard work and heartwork of family engagement.
