Shout out to Italy ISD Principals
Dear Seniors 2023 Parent/Guardian: In 2022, Texas Education Agency (TEA) has implemented NEW graduation requirements for graduating Seniors. The reasoning behind the requirement is a large amount of "untapped federal resources available for post-secondary education.” In better terms, there are funds available for education that are now being used and TEA wants our students to have every opportunity available to take advantage. Many parents have started the process of working through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) because their student is applying to a higher institution or trade school. Students do have additional options and the high school counselor will be discussing this with your student next week. We see that this seems overwhelming and we are inviting representatives from Navarro College financial aid department to assist you here at Italy High School. Students are asked to bring their laptop and representatives can assist in the process. This event will be Wednesday, November 2nd at 5:30-7:30pm in the OLD Cafeteria. Attached you will find resources for this process. As a reminder - Italy ISD does not have a computer lab, so students are asked to bring their laptop to complete this online process. Should you have questions, feel free to reach me at 972.483.7411, extension 1214. We will work through this together! Go Gladiators! COMMON QUESTIONS: What does FAFSA stand for? Free Application for Financial Student Aid What can I do prior to attending the FAFSA Night? Students need to create a FSA ID at www.studentaid.gov Can I use my school email address? Your school email will be deleted once you graduate. Create an account - using an email address OUTSIDE of school email.
