Gear Up Assembly

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The GEAR UP Program objective is to increase the number of students who are prepared to enter and succeed in a post-secondary career or education.  GEAR UP will also focus on increasing the academic performance and preparation for post-secondary education for GEAR UP students.  Also, the GEAR UP Program will increase high school graduation and post-secondary education participation rate.

Students can participate in mentoring, career awareness presentations, job shadowing, internships, college and industry tours, and college bridge programs.  Programs will include after school and summer classes, tutoring, enrichment courses and programs, academic assistance and planning. Major attention will focus on monitoring student progress, and providing youth with extended learning and college/career activities.  Each student will have a personalized educational college and career academic plan that empowers families and students to plan and choose a high-quality education that meets their student’s unique needs.

For the 2019-2020 school year, GEAR UP will focus on "Growth Mindset" to all 8th-grade students in Santa Cruz County. The four key components GEAR UP will also focus on this school year are; Career Identity, Academics, persistence, and post-secondary plan.
