Enrollment Procedure — How will students be identified?
1. Involuntary GEAR UP students will be selected based on academic performance as reflected on their grade reports. These are students receiving low C’s to F’s and will be required to participate.
2. Non GEAR UP students can be recommended by teacher or administrator. To ensure that there are enough slots available in the program, students will need to have tutoring form completed one week in advance.
