HELP SECURE FUNDING FOR YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL

Did you know that the J.O. Combs Unified School District receives federal funding for your child's school based on the income eligibility of our families? We need you to confirm your income eligibility to help ensure our schools do not lose important funding that directly benefits our students. The process takes less than five minutes and can be completed online. Please note, you do not have to disclose your actual income, you will simply have to select if you qualify for an income bracket.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Currently, federal funding from Title I supports several critical functions for your students, including instructional coaches, reading specialists, and other personnel who provide direct instruction. Help us ensure your child's school still receives this funding by verifying your income!
