Project Gear Up:
Accelerating Teacher Shift for Instructional Success

Starting condition

Indiana's teachers serve nearly 1,650 schools in almost 400 districts. They are a workforce about 58,000 strong educating a student body of more than 1 million children and youth, preschool through high school. The demands of 21st Century learning make it essential that we provide training that can help teachers adapt quickly to more rigorous curriculum content. Project Gear Up rolled out training aimed at middle and high school teachers but available to all. It was presented within a network structure that took the old church phone tree into the cloud era, equipping teachers with multiple information sources and layers of support.
