I have arranged a presentation on the FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid) and other financial aid/scholarship processes by Krystal Crawford from the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education. It will be Tuesday, Nov. 15th at 530 pm. It will be a WebEx meeting, which means you can participate by going to Kenny Lake School, Glennallen School, or from your own computer. You will need an invitation link via email and a phone so that you can call in to receive the audio. If you wish to join via your own computer, send me an email and I'll get the meeting link to you (firstname.lastname@example.org). The FAFSA is an important document for anyone going on for training after high school. Krystal will walk you through the application. You will need a copy of your 2015 taxes.
Parents of Sophomore and Juniors-sign up for the PSAT is now happening at Kenny Lake and Glennallen Schools. Cost is $15. This is a great opportunity for your student to test their college preparation skills! The test will be administered on Wednesday, October 19th.
The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an important document for seniors that are planning to go on for college or career training next year to complete. The new changes for this year allow it to be completed between October 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018 for the 2017-18 school year. You will need your tax return for 2015 to complete the document.

Greetings Parents! Attached please find testing information and dates for the SAT, ACT, PSAT, and ASVAB. Important to note: If your junior or senior student wants to take the October 1 SAT, you must register by September 1st!

Dear Parents-I would like to welcome your student back to school, and I look forward to having a great school year! One of the things parents contact me about this time of year is to make class schedule changes. If that is something your student still desires to do, they can see me at school or make the change by clicking here and then clicking on Change Request Form. Throughout the year, parents also contact me for information regarding college and career planning and testing, as well as personal or social concerns about their student. One of the best ways to reach me is by email (email@example.com), but you can also contact me by phone at 822-5286. As I have information that pertains to parents, I will post it here throughout the year. I also post information for high school students by grade level. Click here to view the CRSD Guidance & Counseling website. The senior page, in particular, will receive a lot of posts and should be checked weekly or at least every two weeks.
Again, I look forward to a successful 2016-17 school year for your student in the Copper River School District!
