Title VI, Part B - Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP)
Title VI, Part B, Section 6211 - Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) assists eligible LEAs in addressing local academic needs more effectively by giving them greater flexibility in the use of limited federal resources.
It is designed to address the unique needs of rural school districts that frequently (1) lack the personnel and resources to compete effectively for federal competitive grants and (2) receive formula allocations in amounts too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes.
Eligible LEAs are those either with a total number of students in average daily attendance less than 600 or each county in which a school served by the LEA is located has a total population density of fewer than 10 persons per square mile.
Additionally, the LEA served campuses must be designated with a School Locale Code of 7 or 8 as determined by the United State Department of Education's National Center for Educational Statistics.
