Statewide Closures

On Monday March 30, Gov. DeWine ordered the statewide stay-at-home order to remain in place through May 1, 2020. All K-12 schools in Ohio will be closed during this time to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Please continue to monitor this page for any program updates that may need to be made in response to situational changes.

PEP Day Treatment Centers

Positive Education Program’s Day Treatment Centers will remain closed until May 1, 2020. Hard copy materials were sent to students during the initial phase of the shutdown. As we enter a more prolonged phase of closure, PEP’s educational leaders are in the process of developing a distance learning plan to ensure all of its students are able to continue to progress academically. Information will be shared with families in the coming days. In the meantime, there are a number of free websites recommended by our educational services team that families can use to continue engaging their students.

  • PEP Eastwood
  • PEP Greenview
  • PEP Hopewell
  • PEP Phoenix
  • PEP Prentiss
  • PEP Willow Creek

PEP Connections

PEP Connections will continue to provide services as it typically does, including supporting families with individualized support plans (ISPs) and assessments but will do so virtually, via videoconference or phone.

Team meetings and ISP group meetings will be conducted by phone.

PEP Assist

PEP Assist will continue to provide services virtually, including, for example:

  • Providing resources to districts,
