• Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Class of 2020 Seniors  

     

    Is my graduation ceremony canceled?

    At this point, graduation ceremonies are still scheduled for the original dates. Graduations could be impacted if the state issues other orders prior to June.

    I did not get a laptop before school closed. What do I do?

    Please contact your principal via e-mail. They will assist you.

    I do not have internet access at home. What do I do?

    The District has learned that Charter Communications will offer free broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students, as well as teachers, who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

    If I failed a class and need to retake it for graduation, what are my options during the closures?

    You should already be enrolled. If not, please contact your school counselor.

    Is state testing canceled?

    Yes. If you have not yet met the state testing or graduation pathway requirement, we may have a testing option if school resumes this spring. You can also meet the requirement with certain CTE coursework. You can also apply for a waiver for the pathway requirement. Please contact your school counselor for more information.

    I’m in an AP class. What happens to my scheduled test?

    AP tests are going to be offered online, from home. There are free study resources and classes on the College Board website, and you can e-mail your AP teacher for more help, too. Please see the College Board website at apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates for more information.

    I have received financial aid award letters from colleges I was accepted to. Can someone help go over these with me?

    Please contact your school counselor or school principal. They can help you with FAFSA/WASFA questions, award letter questions, and other college entrance questions you might have.

    I’m in an online class with iPAL. Can I still finish it?

    Yes. All iPAL courses that started before the closure are continuing. You can find updated iPAL information here: www.psd1.org/Domain/1045
