School Improvement Services

GEAR UP Kentucky School Improvement Services are designed to provide support, technical assistance, training, professional development, and resources to build and sustain a college-going culture in GUK schools. These services emphasize using data to make proactive decisions about student readiness, improve school practices and policy, and measure progress. Check out our School Improvement Services brochure here.

Direct Services for Students & Parents

Access program profiles, materials and curriculum guides for the five strategies of direct services for students and parents offered by GUK including GEAR UP-2-Learn, GEAR UP-2-College & Career, GEAR UP-2-Success, GEAR UP-2-Campus, and GEAR UP-2-Focus.

Family & Community Outreach Playbook for Schools

This playbook is designed to support integration of outreach resources into existing school communication channels with families and school community members. Schools may choose to use materials in part or in whole, and as a stand alone effort or as part of an existing parent outreach effort. The playbook is a living document and will change to fit the needs of our schools as we learn from each other and receive feedback from parents, families and school personnel.
