Evaluation of Bryan ISD's Parent Education Partnership Program (PEPP): Implications for Program Development.
Lynch, Patricia S.; Pruitt, Katy
The Bryan Independent School District's (Texas) Parent Education Partnership Program (PEPP) is designed to "empower all families through information, training, and support to enhance the parent-child relationship within the context of the home, school, and community to assure healthy, productive members of society." The 1994-1995 program consisted of parent educators working one-on-one with 125 families of children under the age of 5 by providing home visits, play groups, parent meetings, and developmental screenings. A formal evaluation was conducted of the PEPP program, consisting of a parent involvement survey for educators related to level of parent involvement, value of parent involvement, knowledge of PEPP program activities, and value of PEPP program. The parent interview consisted of open-ended questions related to activities in which families were involved through the PEPP program and suggestions for improving the program. The PEPP program activities were evaluated positively. Families were overwhelmingly in favor of the program, particularly the home visits. Results also highlighted the small number of families served and the need to expand the program. (Two appendices contain the school and parent survey instruments, and the parent interview results.)
