he Maine State GEAR UP grant includes 56 elementary, middle and high schools in 26 districts across the state. Close to 7,000 students are engaged in various ways to increase their awareness and preparedness for postsecondary education and opportunities.
Empowering School Districts
Schools are implementing the GEAR UP goals and objectives in district-guided plans. Shifting a large portion of control to districts creates a more meaningful and targeted course, which includes: allocation of budget, strategies to achieve end goals, and ability to focus on areas of self-assessed need.
