SC GEAR UP
Weekly Memo - 2/7 to 2/13
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Tough loss for the Panthers, but they have a great shot to be back next year.
This will be a report week. Let me know by Friday what's happening in the schools please. Also don't forget to send me your weekly schedules.
College Goal SC
Decision Day plans should also be in the works. Let me know in your reports this week what your schools are planning to do, or at least what ideas you're bouncing around. Don't forget the videos I'm asking the schools to do.
February 17 at Chamber. I have to be at another meeting by 1:15, so we will have to keep it moving.
Objectives for 2015-16
The SCGU Grant objectives for 11th grade will be that 1) At least 25% of our cohort will have passed at least 2 math courses above Algebra by the end of 11th grade; 2) 80% of our students will pass U.S. History by the end of 11th grade.
Remember, the success of the SC GEAR UP Grant will be judged on three things:
1) Did your GU cohort graduate high school at a higher rate than the non GU cohorts?
2) Did your GU cohort enroll at a post-secondary institution at a higher rate than the non GU cohorts?
3) How prepared to succeed were our GU cohort when they arrived at college?
We got the majority of the Q4's signed and downstairs before the Holiday. If we are waiting on information from you or the schools, that's probably the only reason they haven't happened yet.
College Access/Social Media Update
The SC GEAR UP Facebook and Twitter are now both up!!!! Please have the coaches encourage students to like and follow SC GEAR UP on social media. We can do better on Twitter and certainly on Facebook.
Don't forget about the newsletters as well!
