Co-op offers CPEP program

By Jill Clogston

The Northeast Arkansas Educational Cooperative will once again sponsor a free College Preparatory Enrichment Program (CPEP) at several different area sites this summer to help improve students' ACT scores.

The CPEP program provides five weeks of instruction in math, English, reading and test taking strategies. This program is free to eligible 11th and 12th grade students scoring below 19 on the ACT test. The program also provides a free ACT on July 14 for those who satisfactorily complete the program.

The sites include Sloan-Hendrix, Tuckerman, Marmaduke, Greene County Tech, Paragould, Rector and Piggott. Each site will be staffed with a CPEP program manager and certified reading, English and math teachers. The instructional schedule will be set by each respective site; however, in most cases, the programs usually begin around the first week of June and end prior to the July 4 holiday.

Students will be provided with free workbooks and/or other resource materials. In most cases, pencils and notebook paper are the only supplies that the student will need to bring to class. The intent of the classes is to help students learn additional test-taking skills to raise their ACT score and practice taking an ACT in an actual timed situation.

For additional information, call Jill Clogston, supervisor of Gifted Educational Programs and CPEP project director at the Northeast Arkansas Education Cooperative, at 886-7717 or jillc@odin.nesc.k12.ar.us.
