The Glencoe High video is one of four 2016 videos showcasing cutting-edge programs – in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), career and technical education (CTE), the arts and more – that support students in reaching their potential.

During its first two years, the Promise campaign has celebrated the accomplishments of Oregon students and helped galvanize support for increased funding for public schools. Legislators ultimately settled on a State School Fund figure of $7.4 billion for 2015-17 – up $850 million from the previous biennium.
