Everett Community College’s Board of Trustees on Tuesday unanimously approved spending up to $300,000 for low-income students to earn college credit for free through EvCC’s College in the High School program. “The funds allocated by the Board of Trustees will increase access to college, increase enrollment opportunities for low-income, first generation college students and strengthen pathways from Snohomish County High Schools to EvCC,” said EvCC President David Beyer. College in the High School, in partnership with school districts, allows high school students to earn college credit for select classes taught by teachers at their own high schools. The money will allow students who receive free and reduced lunch at 18 high schools within EvCC’s service district to earn five college credits per semester cost free starting Oct. 1.
