Parent Expectations Support Achievement (PESA)
PESA is a parent education program based on research showing that parents' expectations are the greatest predictor of their children's educational success.

Designed to improve participants' skills as a parent or caregiver, the program teaches techniques to help raise a child's academic performance, improve communication with the family and enhance self-confidence.

PESA was developed by LACOE in 1996 and is the companion to the highly acclaimed Teacher Expectations and Student Achievement program, which has influenced a generation of teachers to have high expectations for all students.

It is a behavioral change program that reinforces the same classroom skills taught to teachers in TESA by creating a link between home and school through consistent nurturing and high expectations and standards for students.

Teacher Expectations & Student Achievement (TESA)
Teacher Expectations and Student Achievement is a staff development program that helps close the achievement gap for all students. TESA provides educators with tools to reach this goal and help all children succeed in school.

TESA is designed to modify the way teachers interact with students through heightened awareness of how perceptions affect their expectations. Studies show that using TESA interactions enhances student academic performance and gender and diversity awareness. It also improves attendance and classroom climate, and reduces student discipline problems.
