FWISD Provides Last Minute College Help with "Summer Link"
What: The Summer Link Program
When: This event will occur between June and August
Where: All traditional Fort Worth ISD high schools
Fort Worth, Texas – It is a sad fact that many high school graduates who are accepted into college never actually enroll in school. Part of the reason can be identified as all of the decisions and work associated with housing applications, financial aid needs and the like. Fortunately, studies have shown that with just a little extra support during the summer prior to college there can be a positive impact on the number of students who actually complete enrollment.
To help provide that needed support, the Fort Worth ISD sponsors a program called Summer Link. Summer Link provides much needed assistance through personal outreach to students
Students will be asked to complete an exit strategy form. Then, over the summer, staff will contact the students to make sure they have completed their general college requirements. Such tasks include vaccinations, housing requirements, financial aid and reserved time for campus orientation.
