Changes for the 2018-2019 School Year

Ivy Tech recently notified us that they are removing a class from the requirements to earn an associate degree in general studies. In response to this change, we are discussing various options for incoming juniors in the fall. Our current plan is to coordinate internship-type experiences for the juniors. We will share more details regarding this update as we finalize our plans.

Class of 2018 Data

Austin HS has 22 students on track to earn an associate degree in May 2018.

We have 1 student who is working toward the STGEC.

2 of our seniors are completing programs at Prosser that will result in 15+ dual credits.

In addition, 7 seniors will have 15+ dual credits in welding by the end of this semester.


That's a total of 33.7% of our seniors who are part of ECHS!
