The High Desert Education Services District provides resources for Hispanic adults and families through the Oregon Mexico Education Partnership (OMEP) project. Community Centers called “Plaza Comunitaria” offer literacy programs and resources in Spanish as well as English instruction for Spanish-speaking adults and students ages 14 and older. Books, videos and on-line study courses for all levels of literacy from beginning to continuing education are available. English classes are offered through Central Oregon Community College (COCC) as well as GED prep classes in Spanish. The Plazas are sponsored through a unique partnership between the State of Oregon, Oregon Department of Education and the Mexican Government.
