Texas GEAR UP in Action: Finishing Strong

  • Texas GEAR UP


Big Picture: Bryan ISD GEAR UP team members have turned into some National Geographic-level hunter-gatherers—of student information, that is. The targeted approach their Senior Case Load program takes starts with identifying the most at-risk students in their final year, and then gets them the personalized assistance they need to keep up their head of steam through senior year and into being a freshman in college. Students get access to mentors, counselors, parent liaisons, and best of all, a push in the right direction. We'd call that 'caseload closed.'

Sample Tools: Take a look at the resources that helped Bryan seniors in not leaving (leafing?) any important autumn checkpoints unpassed.
