R.E.A.C.H. Initiative

VEX Tournament

R.E.A.C.H. (Resources for Enrichment, Athletics, Culture and Health) provides an organizational framework for public middle and intermediate schools to offer expanded learning opportunities during after-school hours. The initiative’s mission is to ensure all public school students in grades 6 to 8 receive the academic and community-based support they need to stay on track toward high school graduation by engaging them in a broad-base of programs and activities, outside of regular instructional hours, in the areas of academic enrichment, arts and culture, and athletics.  Started in March 2013 by the Lt. Governor, the R.E.A.C.H. initiative continues to develop with support from the State and community.

To learn more about R.E.A.C.H., please contact the Department of Education’s Office of Community Engagement.
