Purpose: GEAR UP is designed to assist low income students succeed in secondary school so that they will graduate from high school and pursue higher education. The GEAR UP grant is funded through the United States Department of Education.

Objectives: The objectives of GEAR UP: 100 percent of the students will be encouraged to enroll in rigorous academic courses for high school preparation, graduation, and college admission. 90 percent of the priority students will graduate from high school each year and 80 percent will continue their education beyond high school. 50 percent of the GEAR UP priority students and parents will increase their knowledge of college and career readiness. 75 percent of the school district staff who participate in professional development opportunities will increase their knowledge of college and career readiness. Other items that are measured are the number of seniors who complete the FAFSA and the number who have completed a rigorous course of study in high school.

Program Features: 2,700 priority middle and high school students from eight target school districts throughout the state. A priority student is a student that is receiving free or reduced price meals at time of enrollment in the program and is from a target school. Students between the grades 6-10 can be enrolled in the program. Students are expected to participate and remain in the program until high school graduation. Outreach services to 45,000 students, parents, and school district staff to promote college accessibility, attainability, and affordability is also provided.
