FAFSA Playbook
Last year, 47% of Arizona high school seniors completed the FAFSA. The state has set a goal of reaching 52% FAFSA completion for this school year. To get there, the Valley Leadership Education Impact Team created two new resources: a FAFSA Playbook for superintendents, school boards, and policymakers and an online FAFSA Toolkit. The Playbook discusses the importance of FAFSA, promising practices to increase FAFSA completion, and a handout for parents/families, among other things. The Toolkit includes a comprehensive set of ideas, best practices, resources, and a full social media communications campaign to help schools promote FAFSA with their students. The Education Impact Team was made up of Valley Leadership class members and strategic partners including: Helios Education Foundation, Expect More Arizona, Be a Leader Foundation, Achieve60AZ, the Arizona College Access Network, the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education, and Valley of the Sun United Way.
You can find the Playbook for superintendents, policymakers and governing boards here: https://www.helios.org/news-media/publications/increasing-fafsa-completion-in-arizona
