On Monday, January 20th, Barbara Mongar from the Alaska Commission on Post-Secondary Education will be here. She will present information on the Free Application For Federal Student Aid, the Alaska Performance Scholarship, and other aid programs. The FAFSA is a document that seniors who plan to go on for any level of college training next year must complete. Parents of all students are welcome to attend. She will be at Glennallen School, and we will broadcast via VTC to Slana and Kenny Lake Schools. The presentation will start at 6 pm in the computer lab.
Parents-The CIRI Foundation has developed an excellent guide with an extensive amount of education related information and resources that is available for you (attached below). While much of the information is specific to our Alaska Native students, there is also a lot of information applicable to all students. I encourage you to take a look at it.
Senior Parent Night: The purpose of the Senior Parent Night will be to help you guide your student as they prepare to graduate and take the next step after high school. We will discuss a variety of things to include scholarships, post-secondary school research, the Alaska Performance Scholarship, and more. I hope you can join me!
