2020 PEP Award Letters to Your Superintendent

Every year PSMLA seeks to identify and publicly recognize exemplary PA world language programs through the PSMLA Exemplary Program (PEP) Awards. We have just mailed letters to all 500 PA superintendents to explain the PEP Awards and have included information on some newer initiatives – the “PSMLA Global Scholars Program” and the nationally growing “Seal of Biliteracy”.  We hope that you will be able to discuss these programs and provide further information.  Your superintendent will probably receive the letter within the next few days and may have questions. Feel free to alert them that the letter is coming. 

2020 PEP Award Application Information

The 2020 PEP Award Application Packet, Rubric, Indicators, PEP Awards Showcase, and a copy of the letter to Superintendents are on the PSMLA website: PEP Applications may be submitted via US mail or online—please note that there are separate directions. There is one change this year. PSMLA will now allow the proficiency portions of AP Tests to be submitted as evidence for Indicator #8 at one level of instruction.  PEP applications are due on or before February 8, 2020.
