Would you like a copy of your application for your records? Please print each page of answers just before you move to the next page of the application.
Your e-mail will have a deadline to respond (about 2 weeks). If you miss your deadline, the next person(s) on our wait list will take your place(s). If you do not receive an e-mail to attend within 4 days of submitting your application, please contact Pahmela Hines at 303.866.6771 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who pays for my food and lodging? During the conference the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) will provide for your lodging and meals (excluding Friday evening’s meal, which is on your own). While a family member or a caregiver may stay in your room if providing care for a child, lodging and meals are only provided for those who are confirmed as conference participants. Some hotels may charge for extra people staying in a room. If that is the case, then the participant would be responsible for making arrangements and paying for any extra charges. At no time will children be permitted to enter the PEP sessions or PEP dining rooms.*
*The only exception would be mothers with nursing babies. If you require this special consideration, please contact a PEP staff member at 303-866-6846 (leave your name and phone number).
It is expected that participants stay for the conference in its entirety, from Thursday 5:00 PM through Saturday 3:00 PM. Please choose an appropriate PEP conference date where that will be possible. In addition, while it is not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to apply with another person who will participate in the conference (spouse, parent, support person), or share a room with another conference participant, because of the emotional intensity of some of the sessions. PEP Conferences are for Colorado parents and Colorado professionals only.
