The Parent Engagement Program (PEP)
Online And On Campus Programs that empower parents to empower students
The ARKGroup is excited to present its Parent Engagement Program (PEP), a new concept in schools’ parent-enrichment programming. PEP is a research-based and evidence-based online program that provides positive parenting strategies to parents and caregivers. Children raised in emotionally healthy homes will have a dramatic impact upon the quality of the experience at school. PEP is compatible with and supplements, CPE training for teachers. Our state-approved program helps school districts meet their Campus Improvement Plan requirements while helping build better relationships at home and school.
PEP was developed by the Children’s Center for Self-Esteem, Inc. (dba The ARKGroup), a 501(c)(3) agency whose mission is to elevate the self-esteem of children and students.

Success Requires Strong Support at the Top!
It is essential to PEP’s success that summit leadership provide strong “PEP Talks.” Parents will enroll in a school’s parenting program only if the top people at the district and campus level enthusiastically promote the program. When the Parent Engagement Program receives the whole-hearted, on-going support of the District Superintendent and Principals, the result will be improved parent-student relationships which, in turn, will help promote student success.
Remember, strong PEP Talks must start with leadership at the top!
