The deadline for Tennessee Promise students to file the FAFSA is Feb. 15. This is an important step in supporting your students’ Tennessee Promise applications and, ultimately, an important step toward achieving our statewide goal of 55 percent of students on track for postsecondary completion by 2020. Filling out the FAFSA gives students access to scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study programs administered by the federal government. The FAFSA can also help students receive school-based financial aid.
The Federal Student Aid’s Financial Aid Toolkit (here) is available to assist students, families, and schools. Additionally, the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) has resources (here) available that counselors can share with their students. Students must create a FSA ID before completing the FAFSA. For more information contact your TSAC Outreach Specialist or Jason.Seay@tn.gov.

April 15th, 2016
8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
For Pre-K, the child must be four years of age by August 15, 2016.
For Kindergarten, the child must be five years of age by August 15, 2016.
The student's legal guardian/parent must complete the forms for registration at the school they wish to attend. Here is a list of what parents will need to bring to the registration.
For the Pre-K registration, parents will need to provide proof of income. Income verification documents include pay stubs, W-2 forms, Income Tax 2015, unemployment compensation, worker’ compensation documentation, pension stubs, retirement documentation, social security, veteran's benefits letter, child support, alimony documentation, SSI documentation, TANF documentation, foster care reimbursement, Public Assistance payment, TN Care verification.
The Voluntary Pre-K program is specifically funded for children in economically disadvantaged situations. However, we encourage everyone to apply even if they may not qualify as economically disadvantaged because occasionally there are student openings after the economically disadvantaged children are placed in the classes. We want to serve as many children in Loudon County as possible.
For Pre-K and K registration, parents will need to bring:
A state certified birth certificate (a common problem is that parents have the hospital birth certificate but not the state issued one), proof of residence in Loudon County (utility bill, renter's agreement or property tax notice with a matching guardian’s driver's license), proof of Social Security number. If the child is already 4 for Pre-K or 5 for K they will need to bring their immunization record and medical examination/physical papers. The medical exam/ physical papers can be obtained at the child’s pediatrician's office. If the child was born in the state of TN, the birth certificate can be obtained from the Health Dept. or from the state website. There is usually some difficulty obtaining doctor appointment and birth certificates at the last minute, so we encourage parents to plan ahead for these needs.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Pre-K Instructional Supervisor, Scott Mackintosh, at 458-5411 ext. 1008 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the Elementary Instructional Supervisor, Maria Warren, at 458-5411 ext. 1013 or email@example.com.
