NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Department of Human Services has partnered with Families First parents to register more than 700 high school seniors for Gov. Bill Haslam's free-tuition program.

Tennessee Promise offers eligible high school seniors free tuition to a two-year community or technical college.

DHS said in a news release that the department reached out to Families First parents with students in the 12th grade to encourage them to enroll in the program.

Families First, a state program for needy families, focuses on gaining self-sufficiency through employment.

DHS said its effort is part of the department's commitment to a two-generation approach to creating successful pathways toward self-sufficiency.

The department says it will continue to partner with the parents and youth to assist them in completing the requirements of the program.
