The role of the Schools Programme is to assist schools in meeting the following government priorities;
- Increased number of primary and intermediate students achieving in literacy and numeracy
- Increased proportion of 18-year-olds with NCEA Level 2 or an equivalent qualification
Programme delivery takes many forms and reflects the diverse nature of our geographic location. Many programmes are based around providing specialist tutors, other programmes specifically address the issue of student underachievement.
REAP also provides professional development opportunities for teachers and other school staff.
The Schools' Coordinator works closely with the Taupo Community of Learning, Taupo RTLB Cluster, the Taupo Principals' Association and the Reporoa Valley Schools Cluster.
The Schools Programme invites biannual requests for assistance from schools and school based organizations. REAP’s contribution to schools programmes is decided upon by a committee formed from the REAP Board (elected from the wider community). Examples of programmes receiving REAP funding are:
- remedial literacy and numeracy
- truancy initiative
- classroom management practice
