GEAR UP

Call 575-624-7043 for more information.

Purpose:

Prepare Chaves County public high school 10th and 11th grade students for college by addressing the most critical needs of students at risk of educational failure and ensuring that significantly more students successfully pursue postsecondary education.

Vision:

  • Increase student academic achievement, high school graduation rate, and college enrollment
  • Increase parent/family involvement in school activities
  • Transform instructional and intervention strategies at the partner schools, embedding them in those schools far beyond the seven-year grant period

Goals and Objectives:

  • Provide students with academic intervention and enrichment; personal and career counseling; teacher professional development; and parent involvement.
  • Design, implement, and evaluate programs that are responsive to student, parent/family, school, and community needs.
  • Through participation in GEAR UP activities, students will become aware of the world outside their local community and become motivated to set ambitious goals for their education and career aspirations.
  • Project goals, objectives, and expected outcomes specifically address the identified needs of targeted students, parents, and teachers, and seek to reduce the magnitude of the educational, social, and professional problems facing these groups.

GEAR UP Programs include:

  1. Tutoring – Free online tutoring with Smarthinking™ and after school tutoring programs.
  2. Mentoring – Free mentoring services available. Please contact your school’s GEAR UP Academic Advisor or Counselor for more information.
  3. Faculty and administration development for all cohort schools/teachers.
