Collegewise | Runway : A Wiser Path to College

Our partners at Collegewise have launched Runway, a free series of college planning programs and resources, carefully structured to give students and parents the tips, tools, and timelines they need to reach their college goals in the year (the experience, really) that is 2020. There are specific programs for all high school grade levels and we are one of the very first districts to get access to this programming. This program is available to all of you and there is no cost for access.

WebGrants 4 Seniors

SENIORS, your GPA has been uploaded to the California Student Aid Commission for Cal Grant Verification. You can create an account on to view your status.


Please remember that attendance counts, every period, every day. Students will be marked absent if they are not on camera at the beginning of each period to verify their attendance.

If your student is having difficulty logging in, please contact your teacher immediately, and remember to clear their attendance by the end of the day.

All single-period absences will need to be reconciled through the attendance office by the student. If marked absent, students will receive an email from the attendance office notifying them that they have been marked absent. The notification will include the date and period of the absence. The student will need to contact the Attendance Department to make any necessary corrections to their individual period attendance. For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.

We are so happy to see all of our students online and learning. They are working hard and making us proud. Keep up the great work!

9 & 10 Grades: 909-594-1333 Ext. 43642
