Parents for Public Schools Jackson secured foundation funding for the pilot Ask For More program in the Lanier Feeder Pattern (LFP) group of schools. (Learn more about the feeder patterns in Jackson Public Schools.) Educators worked to support the well-being of each and every student through their entire progression through school. Teachers and principals engaged parents, students and community partners in the process, and that sense of shared responsibility radically improved how schools operate.
Once isolated as the lowest-performing public schools in Jackson, LFP schools saw drastic improvement in educational outcomes and the highest rise in graduation rate in all of Jackson Public Schools. Ask for More and the Lanier Feeder Pattern continue to work together to see that every child finds success from pre-kindergarten all the way through high school graduation.
PPSJ’s Ask for More program proves that all schools have the capacity for positive, lasting change.
