Students in GEAR-Up Workshop

   The GEAR-UP cohorts include the Class of 2024 and the Class of 2025 at Livingston High School.  These students participated in a workshop this week with a group called Paradigm Shift.  The workshop consisted of team-building activities emphasizing core values.  The activities help students learn different skills in leadership, team building, communication, social-emotional growth, persistence, and grit.  Paradigm Shift will be working with LHS students in several different workshops during this school year.

What is GEAR UP?

LISD GEAR UP logo
The 2021-2022 school year is the fourth year of the GEAR UP seven-year grant provided by the US Department of Education for LISD students that are in the Class of 2024 and 2025. The Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Program (GEAR UP) serves an entire cohort of students and follows the class through high school into their first year of college. The program encourages students to choose a post-secondary pathway including technical schools and the military. The focus of the program is to increase the number of students to attend college or vocational education post-High School. The seven-year grant requires the district to provide services to students to help them with college choice, applications, and financial aid.

The grant will also work to change the culture of our district to help every student realize they can achieve the dream of higher education.
