Welcome to PEP+

Dear Pep + Families,

We are thankful to have you consider our independent study option. This option has been a great match for many families within YCJUSD. PEP Plus contains weekly meetings with your child, their guardian and your child's teacher. This is the foundation of the program, consistent feedback and effective communication with your child's teacher. These meetings can take place in person or via Google Meet.

In addition to the weekly meeting, there are opportunities for students to interact each day. There is daily scheduled class time via Google Meet between your teacher and classmates. In addition, there are office hour opportunities for students to connect with their teacher to get quick answers to questions they may have. Our district has contracted with "PAPER" so that all secondary students 6th grade on up have access to a tutor 24 hours a day. PAPER is available to our PEP students. Another element within the program which promotes interaction is the inclusion of on/off campus opportunities that are arranged with our teachers.

The work that students produce is what makes our program run. Student work submission in a timely manner is how attendance is calculated. Work is submitted online or through hard copies placed in a drop box. Work submission is an element that is worked out with your child's teacher. We try to be as family friendly as possible!

We would love an opportunity to meet you and tell you about our program. Give us a call 909.790.8580 or send our principal a text 909.255.6226 to set up an appointment.

We invite you to attend our informational meeting at 6 p.m. on August 9th. Come meet our teachers and hear about our program.
