Those statistics are also used for teachers and districts to apply for grants or scholarship opportunities. Taking five minutes to complete the fillable pdf or handwrite the application can result in huge opportunities for your students and our school. All information is kept confidential. Only one district employee sees the applications, and that is only to enter the data.
