Montana GEAR UP Schools
Montana GEAR UP schools receive a sub-grant from the state office to implement their plan and services. Utilizing school specific data, each school evaluates their unique strengths and needs to develop a plan of services connected to GEAR UP goals. To maximize the benefit and effectiveness of GEAR UP, a local school management team consisting of at least a school administrator, counselor, GEAR UP liaison, core content teacher, student, parent, and SIG personnel (if applicable) will develop the school's tailored program in collaboration with the Montana GEAR UP school grant manager.
School Grant Managers
Under the supervision of the GEAR UP Director, the School Grant Manager serves in a leadership, consultative, and technical assistance role to school district personnel and the state team in the planning, designing, implementation, operation, and evaluation of programs and services funded under GEAR UP.
