The Louisville Education and Employment Partnership (LEEP) is an in-school program formed through  a partnership between the Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Metro Government, Metro United Way and KentuckianaWorks to reduce the dropout rate among high school youth. Currently at 13 high schools, Career Planners provide support for approximately 75 students/school throughout their high school career to persist towards graduation. Career Planners also provide college and career readiness training for transition to post-secondary education, employment or military service.

The LEEP activities focus on four areas:  academic support, development of life skills, employment readiness, and leadership/community involvement. Monitoring attendance, behavioral incidents and students' progress in earning academic credit are some of the ways the LEEP program supports the District's Strategic Vision that all JCPS students graduate prepared to reach their full potential and to contribute to society throughout life.
