GRAC Issues Town Hall

Session Title: FAFSA/CADAA Graduation Requirement: how did Val Verde USD do it?
Date: March 31, 2021 from 2-3 p.m. Pacific Time
Registration: Click here to register

Within the California Governor’s Budget Proposal for 2021-2022 (pg.91), Gov. Newsom suggests statutory changes to require Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to confirm that all high school seniors complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) beginning in the 2021-22 academic year. This legislative cycle, there is also a separate Assembly Bill (AB 469) promoting similar goals.

Join us for a brief overview of the California Governor’s Budget Proposal and AB 469 by Catalina Cifuentes, Executive Director for College and Career Readiness, Riverside County Office of Education and WACAC Board Member.

Then, discover how the California Val Verde Unified School District (USD) Superintendent Mike McCormick and Asst. Superintendent Mark LeNoir successfully implemented FAFSA/CADAA as a graduation requirement in 2019, created a culture of FAFSA/CADAA completion, and their outcomes.

 

WACAC Wednesdays

Session Description: Should I go straight to university, or should I start at a community college and then transfer? There is no one-size fits all solution as student’s vary based on academic profile, major, finances, and family and cultural considerations. Come learn the latest from a panel of out-of-state transfer admission counselors.
