Low-income families with students in eighth grade have until June 30 to sign up for the College Bound Scholarship program. The program, administered by the Higher Education Coordinating Board, promises to pay tuition (at public institution rates) and a small book allowance.
Students are eligible for the College Bound Scholarship if they qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program, are in foster care, receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits or meet other income standards set by the program.
As part of the application process, students are asked to pledge to get good grades, demonstrate good citizenship and enroll in an approved college or university or career school. Income eligibility will be re-checked during the student’s senior year. Students can apply as early as seventh-grade, but no later than the end of their eighth-grade year.
For more information, call 888-535-0747, go to www.hecb.wa.gov or contact a school administrator.

As with any emergency situation, the decision to cancel or delay school depends on many factors, the most important of which is student and staff safety. Unfortunately, the conditions that cause us to delay or cancel school aren’t always immediately obvious. We strive to make our decisions about school closings or delays as early as possible. Sometimes, the conditions change so quickly that a timely decision is not possible.
