Eastern Promise information meeting in Baker City

Release Date: 
5/15/2012

BAKER CITY, Ore. - Students, parents and teachers are invited to learn more about college credit opportunities during an Eastern Promise information session May 22.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Baker High School library.

Eastern Promise is a program with the intent of providing greater opportunities for high school students to earn college credits, even an associate’s degree, while still in high school.

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 deliver the courses under the mentorship of college instructors.

Easter 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.
