The primary purpose of the Lane Regional Promise Program is to offer equitable and culturally sustaining opportunities for students to earn credit in college- level courses and participate in meaningful career and college exploration experiences.
Who We Are
We aim to foster a college and career going culture that guarantees well-designed opportunities for students to earn credit in college-level courses. We believe that all students should have access to participate in meaningful career exploration experiences that will set them on a path to a successful post-secondary career and/or a college education.
We seek to eliminate gaps in opportunities and barriers to access, which are highly predictable by student’s race, ethnicity, gender, geographic location and socioeconomic status.
We ensure that EACH and EVERY learner receives the necessary resources they need individually to succeed by:
- Reducing the predictability of who does not succeed
- Interrupting practices that negatively impact vulnerable and marginalized students
- Cultivating the unique gifts and talent of every student
What We Do
This program allows high school teachers to become certified to teach the following classes through a sponsored dual credit program with Lane Community College:
- Computer Science 160/161
- Education 100
- Ethnic Studies 101
- Math 111/112
- Writing 121/122
The certification process includes five days of professional development over the summer and ongoing professional learning community participation with Lane Community College instructors throughout the school year.
What We Know
Accelerated learning participants are 30 percentage points more likely to graduate from high school, 25 percentage points more likely to enroll in college, and 22 percentage points more likely to persist in college than their peers who do not take accelerated learning in high school.
