Media Advisory: Open House and Tour of MCPS’s Recovery and Academic Program

April 20, 2023

Members of the media are invited to join Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) leaders for an open house and tour of the Recovery and Academic Program (RAP). RAP is a collaboration between MCPS and Sheppard Pratt to connect youth with academic and substance use recovery support services. These types of services are critical in light of the ongoing substance use challenges that many youth across our country are facing.

RAP helps students continue working toward graduation in a safe and supportive environment during the day while learning the necessary skills needed to maintain sobriety in the afternoons and evenings. It is free of charge to Montgomery County youth and accepts referrals from MCPS, juvenile drug court, and other non-profit agencies.

WHAT: Open House and Tour of MCPS’s Recovery and Academic Program

WHERE: The Landing at Sheppard Pratt, 640 E. Diamond Avenue, Gaithersburg, Suite B, MD 20877

WHEN: Friday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 


  • Rebecca Smondrowski, Member of the MCPS Board of Education

  • Henok Solomon and Madison Ruppenthal, Sheppard Pratt

  • Members of the RAP Youth Student Council

Members of the media are asked to contact to RSVP.
