IROC! (I’m Ready for the Opportunity of College) Summer Camp is a two week summer camp that helps 8thgrade middle school students investigate their potential for college attendance and career exploration. Students are exposed to various collegiate campuses, business environments, and community service projects while using the national Kids2College curriculum.
The Student Engagement and Counseling Services Department will be offering three FREE virtual Financial Aid Sessions via Zoom during the Spring semester. Assistance will be available in both English and Spanish to aid families in navigating the FAFSA or TASFA application process.
If you have questions like: What is FAFSA? How is FAFSA different from TASFA? Are there deadlines? We encourage you to pick a help session date and join anytime during the designated hours.
Parents and students are encouraged to have the following items to complete FAFSA/TASFA forms:
Federal Student Aid PIN*
Social Security number*
Driver’s license number
Tax records* — or use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
Records of untaxed income*
Records of all assets (savings and checking account balances)
List of the school(s) the student are interested in attending
*= Mandatory documents needed to complete the FAFSA/TASFA forms
Can’t make one of the meetings or need in-person help? No problem. Students and families can always contact their school counselor or College and Career Readiness Coach for assistance at any time.
Whether in-person, or in cyberspace, Fort Worth ISD teachers, staff and students are encouraged to dress in college colors as a way to promote the attainable goal of a college education.
The District is asking schools and families to get creative. While some may dress in gear from his or her favorite institution, others may decorate learning at home spaces or classrooms doors. Still, others may incorporate the vision or mission statement of a particular school in a lesson plan. Your limitation is your imagination!
