College Working to Keep Options Open
By now, many of you have heard that the Lincoln County School District is considering the elimination of the Expanded Options program, starting this fall. Since this news first came to light, many concerned parents, students and college employees have approached the college with questions. The thorough and thoughtful coverage by our local media has deepened the discussion and provided important context.
Expanded Options is a long-standing partnership between the college and Lincoln County School District, one that should be preserved and strengthened despite the budget constraints faced by both institutions. This program gives
our hard-working high school juniors and seniors (currently
about one out of every seven) a leg up, by giving them the opportunity to earn college credits at no cost or debt to themselves, or their families. We believe Lincoln County needs more of these kinds of opportunities for our young people, not fewer. We are committed to working with our community, and with our partners at the Lincoln County School District, to ensure that this vital program continues
to serve Lincoln County’s students and families for years to come.

If you have experienced the Expanded Options program and would like to share your story, email Shirley Hill or call 541-994-4166.
