Eastern Idaho Plans a Community College

As voters in Ada and Canyon counties prepare to decide on a $180 million bond for construction at the College of Western Idaho, educators in eastern Idaho are also gearing up for a major expansion of that area’s community college offerings.

Under a plan supported by the Idaho Falls mayor’s office and local groups, Eastern Idaho Technical College, which has long provided classes such as basic education, automotive study, and welding, would be expanded into a community college to prepare the region’s students for higher education.
