What is P-CEE?
Parents and Communities Engaged in Education (P-CEE) is a project of Congregations Organized for Prophetic Engagement (COPE) that organizes parents and community stakeholders to become effective education advocacy leaders who create meaningful change in schools throughout the Inland Valley region. P-CEE meets every third Saturday from 8:30am to 10:30. See the calendar for next meeting.
How do parent and community members participate in P-CEE?
