If your student doesn't plan on attending college but is interested in attending a trade school, information about the FAF will be useful to you, too. Most schools such as Lincoln Technical, RETS Electronic Schools and Yorktowne Business School use the form.
The program is not limited to seniors and their parents, though. Ninth-, 10th- and 11th-grade students and their parents are also invited to get a preview of what's ahead.
Registration is required. For more details, call the school at 437-640.
