Regional Promise Grant

Regional Promise Grants

Seven Full Regional Promise Grants and Two Planning Grants Awarded for the 2017 - 2019 Biennium

The Oregon Department of Education is pleased to announce the recipients of the Regional Promise Program Grants to 9 consortia. The grants leverage K-12 and higher education collaboration to design learning communities that align student expectations from high school through college, to guide and prepare students for post-secondary training and educational opportunities, and to focus on equity in accelerated learning programs across the state. Awards were granted to collaborations from the East County Area near Mount Hood, Northwest Region, Mid-Willamette Valley, High Desert Region, Clackamas, Lane County, Linn-Benton, Intermountain region, and the Southern Oregon area.

The grants were designed to build on the work done during the previous biennium by regional Promise sites. These consortia have significantly improved the system to support students as they explore and plan their personal education path tied to their career interests and goals and increased the number of high school students earning college credits while in high school. The caliber of the proposals was impressive and each of the regions awarded funds will design and deliver individualized, innovative, and flexible ways of preparing students for careers and college, and provide ongoing support for high school teachers and college faculty to collaborate as we work toward a seamless education system.
