Childcare Subsidy Program

Washington County has secured a grant through the federal CARES Act to provide child care subsidies to parents/guardians. The Beaverton School District will be distributing approximately $2.4 million to families who are eligible and apply for these subsidies. In other words, if you pay for child care, you could be eligible to receive money to help cover some or all of your out-of-pocket expenses. Application opens Wednesday, October 28th!

News from the Cube

This month we will start assisting students to complete Financial Aid applications:

FAFSA (for documented students)

ORSAA (for undocumented students)


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:
