Because of CPEO I am more prepared to talk to my children about college. I am now aware of the resources available at school. I feel more of a connection to my child’s school and it was nice to connect with other parents.  Amber Boyce-Fisk – Northeast Middle School CPEO Parent

After completing the program, I will be become more involved with the community and helping kids; talking to them about education and college. I am more encouraged about being active in school and volunteering.  Rodney Watt – North High School CPEO Parent

This program has helped me learn the pitfalls to avoid and made me realize how quickly the next 4yrs will go by. I also learned how invested in our daughters education we as parents are. I made acquaintance with other parents new to school. I am now looking for scholarships.

Also learned about Naviance and its purpose and how grades and other non-academic activity are judged by colleges.  Christopher Cross – South High School CPEO Parent
