Gear Up Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians of 8th-Grade Students:

Your child is attending a GEAR UP Ky school. GEAR UP is a federal program designed to help schools prepare students that are college and career ready! As a requirement of the program, GEAR UP Ky must conduct a brief parent survey. The survey is short, simple and may be completed on paper or online. The purpose of this survey is to help us determine the services GEAR UP should provide in your child's school.

Please answer the following questions in relation to your student. Please complete a separate survey for every child you have in the school(s). These questions are about her/his experiences with school and your expectations for your child's future. The answers you give will be used anonymously and will not be shared or discussed with anyone.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey! - GEAR UP Kentucky

Operation Preparation

On Thursday March 19th 2015 Newport Middle school held Operation Preparation with our 8th grade students.  We had a great turnout with our community members, including Chief Auffart from the Newport Fire Department. There was great conversation with our students. We spent the morning going over test scores and College and Career Readiness.  In all, Operation Preparation was a great success!
