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:

  • (Cohort/Priority) Verify parent and student service estimates, which the GEAR UP office will send you in the Fall.
  • (Cohort only) Upload 2019-20 course enrollment and completion data to the Metis secure website (https://secure.metisassoc.com). Please see the Course Data Excel Template for reference.
  • (Cohort only) Upload 2019-20 enrollment, attendance, and academic information to the Metis secure website (https://secure.metisassoc.com). Please see the Student Data Excel Template for reference.
  • (Cohort only) Respond to a survey request to be released in the fall, which will include # of households, # of staff, and a list of course names for college-credit classes at your school.

 

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.

If you have any questions about this request, or need your cluster-specific username and password, please contact our external evaluator Julia Alemany at jalemany@metisassoc.com.
