D41 District Council

D41 Council

On Your Side

As your Hadley District 41 Council Delegate I will be “blasting” you with important information from the monthly council meetings. The District 41 Council is a group of PTA Presidents, District Board Members, our Superintendent, and leaders of PTA Committees meeting once a month to discuss and share important information and happenings in our schools, our community and our state legislature.

 Of importance this month: Learn about PEP.

What is PEP?

The Partnership for Educational Progress (PEP) is an educational foundation serving the public schools in the Glenbard area community school districts in DuPage County, IL. Founded in 1992, PEP was designed to be the cornerstone for a long-term partnership among community, business, and school organizations to provide ongoing supplemental financial resources for the public schools it serves. PEP is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation.
