The US Department of Education recently released its first annual update of the redesigned College Scorecard – available at http://CollegeScorecard.ed.gov – to ensure that students and families have the most up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable information available on colleges. Check it out!!
FAFSA application’s can be submitted beginning October 1, 2016.
Financial aid begins with the FAFSA, yet in 2013 an estimated 47% of high school graduates neglected to submit theirs, resulting in 2.9 billion dollars in Pell Grants going unclaimed. No student can afford to miss out on financial aid opportunities, which is why AffordableColleges.com created a guide to the FAFSA. Go to http://www.affordablecolleges.com/resources/fafsa.
In the event of bad weather and schools are closed, all students and staff will recieve a recorded message to the phone number on record at your child's school. Please make sure your contact information is up to date. Families who need to update their information should contact their child's school. There will also be a message sent out on the phone/computer app SchoolConnect. You may check local radio and TV stations for information.
Many factors are taken into consideration when deciding to close school, but the safety of our students and staff will always be our number one concern.
