Seniors: Confirm GPA-FAFSA match for Cal Grant Awards
As required by law, the Elk Grove Unified School District has electronically submitted GPAs on behalf of all seniors to the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) for Cal Grant award consideration. Along with GPA, the electronic submission includes other identifying information to match students with their FAFSA. While the GPA-FAFSA matching process has proved to be accurate in the past, there is a possibility that student and parents may be required to take additional steps to ensure GPA and FAFSA information has been matched properly. Parents and students are encouraged to confirm completion and eligibility status for the Cal Grant on CSAC’s WebGrants website by creating an account at https://mygrantinfo.csac.ca.gov. If students have opted out of the electronic GPA submission, they will be required to facilitate GPA verification through alternate means to apply for a Cal Grant.
All students are advised to submit a FAFSA as early as possible (on or after January 1) for consideration for maximum financial assistance. The FAFSA must be completed by March 2, 2016 to also be eligible for a Cal Grant. Students who complete the FAFSA after March 2, 2016 still may be awarded grants or aid, if funding remains available.

The 2016 American Mathematics Competition is quickly approaching. Participating students will need to get the purple Herd Time pass that will allow them to go to the small cafe during herd time on Thursday, February 11th to fill out their answer document ahead of time. These herd time passes are available in their math class. The AMC 10/12 will be administered on Wednesday, February 17th for 75 minutes. The start of the competition will begin as soon as all participating students are registered and seated with their answer document, test, and scratch paper. There are 25 multiple choice questions to be completed in the 75-minute time period. Correct answers are worth 6 points, answers left blank or unanswered are worth 1.5 points, and incorrect answers are worth 0 points. This scoring system is to discourage guessing. Students should be aware that they will not be allowed to leave early. All participating students will remain seated until the 75 minute competition is over. Mr. McNally will be doing the official timing of the event. We hope to start sometime between 3:30-3:45pm. This will allow the event to end sometime between 4:45-5pm. Please plan your transportation around these times. If you have any questions about the AMC 10/12 during the days leading up to the event please contact Mr. McNally in room C-8.
