Penelope and the Parents as Teachers Affiliate Performance Report

Affiliates using Penelope have been hard at work reviewing their data and getting ready to submit their APR. In fact, as of August 1, there have been 153 Penelope users that have submitted their 2018-2019 Affiliate Performance Report!

Here is to what one affiliate said about her experience with the 2018-2019 APR:

“I would like to say how wonderful having the APR information ready through Penelope is; it has made my job so much easier.”
