"Be College Ready" pilot program launches in McMinnville
Posted on 08/11/2015
BCRAt last night's business meeting, the School Board issued a proclamation declaring September “Be College Ready” month in McMinnville and Lafayette schools.

The McMinnville School District is one of five districts across the state selected to pilot a new program to help families start planning for college.  “Be College Ready” kicks off in September 2015 in all six McMinnville elementary schools. 

Each school will host an informational session and registration opportunity for parents.  The schools will all receive homework folders, pencils, pens, bookmarks and motivational posters to share with students, as well as a $529 donation to the PTA.

The proclamation recognizes how planning for postsecondary education fits into the overall education goals of the state and the McMinnville School District.

Anyone is welcome to participate in “Be College Ready.”  For more information and a schedule of the elementary school presentations, click here.  For a checklist of documents needed to sign up for the program, click here (Español).
