WEST CHICAGO – West Chicago Elementary School District 33’s birth-to-three educational program was awarded the first national Quality Endorsement Certificate from Parents as Teachers National Center, which provides research, assessment and curriculum for educational programs.

D-33’s “Project HOPE” program was chosen by the center in 2012 to serve as a pilot site for its program standards and endorsement process.

The project was recognized for its cultivation of community relationships, committed staff and family services, according to a district news release.

As a result of its Quality Endorsement Certification, Project HOPE was represented at the Parents as Teachers National Conference Oct. 2 through 4 in Atlanta.

Project HOPE was developed in D-33 to address the needs of at-risk families.

Staff provide in-home services for these families using Parents as Teachers curriculum.
