FAFSA Checklist

“The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an application that all students should complete if they are planning on attending a trade school, community college, or university. Schools and organizations use the FAFSA to give scholarships, grants and loans to help you pay for any training or school after high school. This list has everything you need to complete the FAFSA, and it opens up October 1! Please contact Mrs. Maguire if you need help completing the application or have any questions!”

 

Credit Check Sheet 

“Every year Mrs. Maguire will complete a credit check with each student, to take a look at which courses you have left to graduate. This is an example of the sheet that she uses and has all of the classes you must take to graduate from high school in the State of Michigan! Some students with special circumstances will qualify for a Personal Curriculum (which may change or remove some classes for graduation), so if you are interested in finding out more information or making a request for a Personal Curriculum, please contact Mrs. Maguire”

Education Project Referral 

“The Education Project (EPHY) is a joint program of Washtenaw Intermediate School District and Ozone House working to ensure students in temporary living situations enroll, regularly attend and succeed in school. We serve children & youth, ages 0-21, from the 9 school districts and thirteen public school academies (PSA) in the county. Each district and PSA has a McKinney-Vento liaison and we work directly with them to provide supplemental services. Below is a brief explanation of the resources and supports the Education Project provides; please feel free to contact us with any other needs and we will work with you to access support. Our goal is to connect with any student or family within two business days of receiving a referral or message.
