Creating Early College Experiences for Students in Eastern Oregon
When students have the opportunity to participate in college-level courses and earn credits or certificates while still in high school, it means real financial savings for families today.
Eastern Promise is a collaboration between Blue Mountain Community College, Eastern Oregon University, Treasure Valley Community College, the InterMountain Education Service District and school districts in Eastern Oregon.
Increasing the number of students who are prepared to attend college directly from high school is the goal of Eastern Promise. Whether you’re a high school student pursuing college credits or an associate’s degree, a teacher or professor looking to connect with other Eastern Promise educators and students, a parent interested in learning how your child can get involved, or a community member curious to find out more, the resources you need are all here.
Training for those interested in offering the Career Choices / Success 101 course will be held Tuesday June 11 & Wednesday June 12 in Hermiston.
The cost for the individual teacher is $199, which includes the training and teacher manuals/materials. As an added incentive Eastern Promise will pay this fee for the first district teacher, and IMESD will pay for the second teacher if a district chooses to send a team.
Training for new and continuing PLC members for the 2013-2014 school year will be held June 17th, 18th & 19th at Eastern Oregon University.
