As a third pandemic school year draws to a close, new research offers the clearest accounting yet of the crisis's academic toll — as well as reason to hope that schools can help.
Starting next school year, the state of California expects every high school senior to apply for financial aid for college. Despite lingering effects of the pandemic, Los Angeles Unified School District has made big strides toward meeting the new financial aid mandate.
California students attending or hoping to attend a four-year college next fall now have an extra month to apply for state financial aid. On Thursday, the California Student Aid Commission announced that the deadline to apply for a state Cal Grant is now April 1.
Financial aid applications were down 12% statewide as of Feb. 23 compared to the same time last year — despite hopes that a return to in-person learning would prompt more students to complete this crucial step toward higher education.
