Future Educator Program
2024 Future Educator Program Sign-Up
The Eastern Oregon REN invites districts to sign-up students to participate in the EOU Future Educator Program for the 2024 Spring Semester. The Future Educator Program is a pilot program offered in partnership between EOU and the Eastern Oregon REN.
Click the button below to sign-up your students by December 8, 2023. EOU will be in contact with the listed district contacts in order to get the class set-up for the January start.
For this upcoming semester the following courses will be offered:
ED119 - Future Educator (3 credits): EOU will work with individual districts to design as an in-person, online synchronous, or online asynchronous option for your students
ED109 - Education Lab (1-3 credits depending on time; 30hrs required/credit): this is a dual-credit option for students interested in serving in your school as a Teacher's Assistant for the semester
To promote and generate interest in the field of education within local districts and among local high school students;
To increase equitable access to dual credit opportunities in our rural students; and
To eventually increase the number of high quality educators seeking opportunities to work in our schools.
Any 10-12th grade student(s) from any EOREN district (Grant, Harney, Lake, Malheur, and Wallowa County Schools, or Huntington SD in Baker County)
Credits will be through Eastern Oregon University
For this semester, the Eastern Oregon REN will reimburse the cost of credits successfully completed by students. Each district should submit a request for credit reimbursement to the Eastern Oregon REN via Program/Finance Specialist, Kate Russell (Kate.Russell@malesd.org) no later than May 15, 2024 (please list all student names and associated number of credits completed in the invoice).
