What is PERC?

The Parent Education Resource Center (PERC) is an organization founded by the PTA in association with Alpine School District and the City of Orem. The purposes of PERC are to help improve parenting skills, improve parental involvement in their child's education, and support parents as their children grow. These services are for all adults, no matter where you live, even if you are not part of a school district. Any adult is welcome to come and make use of our services. Teenagers are also welcome to make use of our services, as long as they have permission and signatures from their parents. In an effort to fulfill the purposes of PERC, we have many items available to parents, educators, and families. PERC has a collection of over 10,000 items including: Books Educational games DVDs/video tapes CDs/audio tapes CD-Roms This collection is also available to teachers, pre-schools, and similar organizations. As well, mini-presentations are available for PTAs, church groups, and civic groups.
