Application window opens


December 31, 2023

Application deadline for both elementary and secondary schools NOTE: Submitting the application online is just the first step. All applicants must also provide supporting documentation, like tax forms and W-2’s. Applications can only be verified and processed once the necessary documentation is received by FACTS. It takes FACTS about 14 business days to process application once paperwork is received, so the sooner it’s submitted, the better. This is the deadline for both submitting the application and submitting documentation. Exceptions won’t be made.

Sincerely,

Monica Wingard
