FAFSA Letter to Parents

 February 2016  
Dear Parents, 
You are receiving this letter because your child is a 12th grade student at Madera Unified School District. We would like to strongly encourage all 12th grade students to complete the Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). 12th graders who complete the FAFSA by March 2nd will be considered for the Cal Grant or Middle Class Scholarship award. These state grants represent free money to assist students in pursuing higher education. The state requires school districts to submit 12th grade students grade point averages to the California Student Aid Commission to allow students to be eligible to qualify and receive these funds for post-secondary education. Please contact your child's counselor if you would like to have your child opt out of the GPA submission process. 
If you have questions or require assistance on the FAFSA application process, please contact your child's respective school counselor and the counselor will assist you with this process.
