GEAR UP Schools
Arizona GEAR UP partners with 12 high schools located in nine school districts around the state. Click on the links next to the Arizona map below to learn more about our school partners.
Through the Arizona GEAR UP program,
each school is provided with a site coordinator who acts as a liaison between
the school and the GEAR UP team of experts. By working together, GEAR UP and
its site coordinators can review and determine which interventions are likely
to be effective for the students in the GEAR UP cohort.
Arizona GEAR UP then provides the site
coordinator with the specific techniques, tools and guidance, allowing the site
coordinator to extend that expertise to all teachers working directly with GEAR UP students.
This ‘train-the-trainer’ approach
allows Arizona GEAR UP to provide research-based, effective academic interventions
to the largest possible number of students.
