Social and Political Expression
Our District has received numerous questions from both staff and community members about the appropriate manner in which to express social or political viewpoints in schools — whether virtual or in-person. We understand and appreciate that our students, families and staff have beliefs that span the political spectrum. The district has prepared this document to provide students, families and community with information abour social and political expression in our schools.
News from the CUBE!
All students who plan to attend 4-year university or community college, need to apply for financial aid. Many of our seniors will qualify for grant money to help them pay for post-high school education. Grant money is not a loan, it doesn't need to be paid back. It's the best kind!
Seniors will be asking you for some help. They will need access to your 2019 tax information and you will need to sign their application.
These guides are my favorite resource on FAFSA because they are simple, helpful, and easy to understand. I encourage you to take a look!
If your student will file an ORSAA application, please watch this short informational video:
