>San Antonio Independent School District Gears Up for College
Posted by nick_niesen on October 27th George Kittle Kids Jersey , 2010
San Antonio Schools held two college fairs as part of its GEAR UP program to help the class of 2012 get ready for college.
GEAR UP Fairs in the San Antonio Area
Current Sixth Grade students and their families attended college fairs at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Participants learned about basic college requirements, entrance examinations, and how to find financial aid. To add a little local flavor to the occasion, school cheerleaders and mariachis performed and refreshments were served.
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a federally funded grant given to states to increase the number of low income students enrolling in college. The grant provides funding for six years in order to promote one class of students in college readiness from sixth grade through twelfth grade. Some GEAR UP funds go toward college scholarships for needy students.
GEAR UP isn?t just for schools. Local businesses and community groups Jimmy Garoppolo Kids Jersey , including those with religious affiliations, can partner with local schools to provide college information for students. Each school or organization, however, is expected to match federal funding dollar for dollar Jerry Rice Kids Jersey , meaning that the non-federal contribution must be at least 50 percent.
GEAR UP funds can be used on a variety of student population groups by focusing on either a ?cohort? or ?priority students.? Each cohort must satisfy one of the following requirements:
?All of the students in a particular grade level at a participating school that has a seventh grade and in which at least 50 percent of the students are eligible for free or reduced price lunch under the National School Lunch Act.
?All of the students in a particular grade level who reside in public housing.
Priority students, on the other hand, are students who are eligible to be counted under one of the following laws:
?The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (Title 1)
?Free or reduced price lunches under the National School Lunch Act
?Assistance under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Title 1 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996)
Private school students also have a chance to participate if they meet any of the above requirements. In order to do so, a local education agency must act on their behalf and either an institute of higher learning or a local education agency is in charge of their finances. For private school students to participate Joe Montana Kids Jersey , the private school itself must also be a partner in the grant.
Opportunities for the San Antonio Independent School District
The district has a lot to gain from the GEAR UP program in targeting students and their parents early on in the college decision making process. Beginning with sixth grade students, the program allows parents and students to develop gradually in undertaking the many responsibilities that come with applying for and paying for college. The class of 2012 is on its way to making a smooth transition into university education.
Do you have a toddler who is ready for potty training? Once you have established the fact that she is physically and emotionally ready to be trained, then what?
Here is an easy list of items needed when toilet training toddlers.
- Potty chairs.
This, of course 49ers Mitch Wishnowsky Jersey , is the first consideration. You'll need a potty chair, a miniature toilet that sits squarely on the floor and is the perfect size for your toddler. You also have the option of choosing a potty seat, which is a kid-sized detachable toilet seat that fits on top of the adult toilet in your bathroom.
A potty seat means your child can climb up, through the use of a step stool 49ers Jalen Hurd Jersey , and sit on the adult toilet as she is potty trained, thus eliminating the need to empty out and clean a potty chair bowl.
However, this technique is rather advanced for some children. Many toddlers simply don't feel comfortable climbing up high on the big toilet and some kids require help in doing so. Consider the bathroom space you have for a separate potty chair as well as your child's temperament when choosing between a potty seat or chair. Or choose a potty chair that can turn into a potty seat when necessary.
- Clean clothes and undies.
Trust me, you'll need LOTS of clean clothes and toddler underwear. Accidents will happen and if they don't 49ers Deebo Samuel Jersey , you are one of the rare cases.
Make sure clothes are easy on and off and that your toddler can get them up and down by himself.
Toddler underwear is an important issue, too. There are many different types of potty training underwear, some washable and some disposable, some waterproof and some not.
In general 49ers Nick Bosa Jersey , you need to know that disposable training pants can be a convenience, but they also prevent your child from feeling the wetness of an accident and thus don't work well with all children.
It is often motivating for a young child to get "big boy" or "big girl" underwear with either pretty colors or beloved characters decorating the undies. Consider the physical size of your child (how much urine there is in case of an accident) and how you will use the training pants (at home or on the go) when you choose potty training underwear.
- Wipes. And more wipes.
Obviously, you're going to need a mountain of wipes while toilet training your toddler. You probably already have these on hand, so just make sure to stock up before you start training.
- Protective surfaces.
Beds 49ers Solomon Thomas Jersey , furniture or car seats need to be protected from potty training accidents. Sometimes it is just a matter of a waterproof or water resistant piece of fabric added to a chair or car seat.
