Welcome to WSU Early Outreach
GEAR UP is excited to make its way into Kennewick High School and start providing services to students! Through the summer, the GEAR UP program already began to support staff at Kennewick by sending four teachers to Palm Springs, California to attend a READ 180 conference, provided curriculum hours for math improvement, training in SureScore college readiness curriculum, and training to utilize the TI Nspire supplemental math program to increase students' understanding of math concepts.
Late this summer and starting into this early school year GEAR UP has or will provide the "7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens' book for all freshman, fifty five iPads, four classroom sets of TI-Nspire calculators and a new supplemental science program.
We are excited to also begin to provide direct services to students and families in mentoring and tutoring utilizing a Student Achievement Specialist and tutors to be hired.
GEAR UP is thankful for all the teachers, staff, and administration at Kennewick High School who have made our transition so smooth and continue to give their ongoing support to our program and we are excited to see what adventures the 2013-2014 school year will bring and "Go Lions"!
