Academic Development Institute

The Metro-East Parent Connection (MEPC) was set up by parents for parents to share the joy and challenges of parenthood. Raising children is the most important job in a parent’s life, and the Metro-East Parent Connection offers help and support. MEPC provides service to parents and school personnel in the Metro East area and serves as a resource to parents, parent groups, schools and agencies.

MEPC brings parents together to create strong and effective links between the “classroom” and the “living room” to ensure all children’s success in and out of school.
