DMACC Last Dollar Scholarships
Even students who typically receive no federal or state aid- the Last Dollar Scholarship program can pay their entire tuition. That’s right, regardless of their personal income situation, they could pay no tuition costs.
Here’s how it works:
Students complete their FAFSA by July 1, 2021
Students are accepted/enrolled in one of DMACC’s Eligible Programs
Financial Aid calculates the student’s award and any remaining balance beyond the eligible aid is COVERED by the SCHOLARSHIP!

Governor Reynolds has issued a Proclamation that does not restrict how many spectators can attend extra-curricular events. After consultation with Marion County Public Health and a review of data, KCSD will not restrict the number of fans that can attend our home extra-curricular events.
A couple of requirements for fans wishing to attend our home events:
Masks are still required.
Groups of spectators must social distance.
If you do not feel well - stay home.
For those interested, there will still be a free live stream option to view our home high school events.
We will continue to monitor our data and make adjustments as needed to ensure the health and safety of our students, families, and community.
