What is the REAP Program?

Re-engaging in Education for All to Progress, also known as REAP, is a program designed for students who are considering dropping out of high school. REAP provides an alternative path to a high school diploma. All students attending REAP must be enrolled in the Jackson Public School District. Students are referred to the program through the district’s lead counselor. After their transcripts are assessed, if eligible, the student will then be interviewed by a committee with the parent present.

Students who attend the program have not been successful in the regular high school setting. The smaller classes (maximum of 15 students per class) allow teachers to provide individualized instruction. The four-by-four block scheduling allows students to complete more core courses in one year than allowed on the A/B block schedule. Also, the flexible scheduling options allow more students to successfully complete their high school career and receive a diploma.

If admitted, with regular attendance, active class participation, practice and review, parental involvement, and good conduct, students will complete the program in two years or less with a high school diploma. REAP students will be eligible to participate in commencement exercises with their home school.

REAP will provide:

  • Core Courses
  • Credit Recovery
  • ACT Prep
