Eastern Promise information meeting in Baker City
Beginning this fall, college-level math, writing, biology, speech and health will be available in approximately 25 eastern Oregon high schools. High school teachers will teach the courses under the mentorship of college instructors.
Eastern Promise supports Governor Kulongoski’s overarching 40/40/20 goal, with 40 percent of adult Oregonians obtaining a bachelor’s degree or higher, 40 percent earning an associate’s degree or postsecondary credential, and 20 percent earning at least a high school diploma.
The program is a collaborative effort between Eastern Oregon University, the InterMountain Education Service District, and Blue Mountain and Treasure Valley community colleges.
