What’s happening locally:
Eastern Wyoming College is a student-centered, comprehensive community college that responds to the educational, cultural, social, and economical needs of its communities with quality, affordable educational opportunities for dynamic lifelong learning.
Community education is coming back to Sundance! There will be many community education classes offered during the 2013-2014 school year. I am currently looking for interested community education instructors and class ideas. If you have a skill you would
like to share, please stop by the EWC Outreach office located in Sundance High School or by contacting Brittany at 307-290-2770.
My goal is to establish a program of adult and community education that engages people of all ages to provide learning and growing opportunities. Classes will range from crafts and hands on projects like becoming a fishing pro to becoming a cake decorator like Buddy Valastro and everything in between!
I currently have over 50 class ideas and just need instructors for these wonderful education classes! Set up an appointment to meet with Brittany and discuss the possibilities! Also, instructors are able to set a schedule that works for them and they will be compensated for their time and talents!

What are concurrent enrollment classes?
Concurrent enrollment classes are college classes taught by high school faculty who have been approved as community college adjunct faculty who are teaching said courses as part of their duties as a Crook County School District employee. These college courses simultaneously satisfy high school graduation requirements. These courses have been approved by the college as having equivalent course content, learning objectives, and work assignments as an existing college course. In addition, any high school student taking a concurrent course is eligible to take the course free of charge. This also includes any course materials that may be needed! In order to enroll in concurrent courses, students must have sufficient ACT scores or have taken the COMPASS test through the EWC Outreach office. This serves as a prerequisite for enrollment into any concurrent course.
The Dual enrollment program offers the opportunity for high school students to enroll in college courses taught by EWC instructors. The college credit earned will be applied to their high school graduation requirements. The classes provide flexibility for a busy schedule. They are offered online, on-site, or through the WEN video system.
