Guidelines for the members of Reach Educational Services -Updated January 25, 2022

Reach Educational Services is an educational service for learners, parents, teachers and learning coaches. We are connected through technology and united by a desire for success. Our sessions are offered by tutors (teachers), professional development coaches and career readiness coaches who are all certified in their field.

It is important to us that REACH is a safe space for our users.  Our members should treat each other without bias or prejudice across all pillars of diversity including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, and gender identity.  Here are the guidelines that we ask our members to follow. Reach Educational Services’ members who do not meet these guidelines will be removed from the site.
