There have been some changes for the 2016-17 Financial Aid process. All students can begin to file their FAFSA on October 1st. The FAFSA, officially known as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the form that families fill out to apply for federal grants, loans, and work-study funds for college students. It is administered by the U.S. Department of Education, which provides more than $150 billion in student aid each year. North Salem High School will be offering a student/parent meeting on August 22nd at 6:30 pm. The focus of this meeting is to get students and parents prepared to file the FAFSA on October 1st. All students/parents will be applying for an FSA Identification at this time. Please remember to bring your social security cards and encourage your parents to attend as well. For more information, please call 503-399-3223
This fall, parents of Salem-Keizer students have a new, convenient option for paying student fees.
Through the Online Payment Portal, parents can use a credit card to pay athletic fees, library book fees, purchase ASB cards, make a donation, and take care of other payment transactions. The Online Payment portal processing fee is the same as the fee charged when making a credit card payment in the school office (2.75 percent).
The Online Payment Portal does not replace the food service payment system, EZSchoolPay.
Find a link to the Online Payment Portal on our school website, or visit https://skpay.salkeiz.k12.or.us.
Information from the Oregon Department of Education about parents’ right to opt students out of state testing is available for pick-up from the North Salem Business Office starting January 1, 2016. The information includes the state’s official notice and opt-out form. Please contact principal Cynthia Richardson if you have questions about the opt-out process, or about state tests given in our school.
