Each year we submit an Annual Performance Report (APR) to the U.S. Department of Education and ask you for data from your cluster to help complete it. Course enrollment/completion, enrollment, attendance, and academic information is required for all GEAR UP students enrolled in grades 7-12 at GEAR UP Cohort schools in the 2019-20 school year.

  • Note: Priority schools do NOT need to submit data to Metis. They only need to update the ECST and verify service estimates.

The following data will be due in the fall of 2020. Please review the list of data needed and make sure that you will have access to this data.

By 9/15/2020:

  • (Cohort/Priority) Ensure that all services and cost share are complete in the ECST, for the 2019-20 school year, through 8/31/2020.

By 10/31/2020:

See below for ODE’s definition of dual credit classes:

  • Dual Credit: In Dual Credit courses, the high school teacher is determined qualified by their partnering post-secondary institution’s content departments to act as a proxy faculty member. These courses are sufficiently similar to enable the student to be described as “taking a course” from the postsecondary institution.
  • Sponsored Dual Credit: In Sponsored Dual Credit courses, a high school teacher partners with a sponsoring faculty member at a college or university to offer the course. These courses are sufficiently similar to enable the student to be described as “taking a course” from the postsecondary institution.

Final Performance Report

In May, we will be sending out a request for student and course information for the 2020-21 school year, to complete our Final Performance Report after the grant is closed.

 

If you have any questions about this request, or need your cluster-specific username and password, please contact Chloe Rinehart at Metis Associates, our external evaluation provider.

If you have any other questions about the APR, please contact Natalie.
