Welcome and Program Overview
End of the quarter/Semester is January 19, 2018. If you havent checked your childs grades please do so. If you dont have access or forgot how to log in, give us a call.
If you have a Native American student, please remember to turn in the 506C form and a JOM form if your child is either enrolled, eligible for enrollment or is a combined 25% Native American from various bands/tribes. This is important information to have on file and should follow your student from school to school as well as assisting your child when it comes time for college and scholarships.
If you have paperwork or questions regarding Title VI, AMI, or JOM please call or come in and see me. I can meet with you and assist in the completion of it while you are here.
