Our Superintendent

  • Dr. Tammy Campbell, Federal Way Public Schools Superintendent

    It’s almost graduation season for area high schools. Our seniors have worked hard, studied well, and prepared to take that next big step—attending college or a career school. But do they know how are they going to pay for it?

    Unfortunately, for many high school graduates, the daunting task of paying for college remains a major obstacle. What’s more, many graduating seniors are eligible for financial aid, but either don’t know how to access it, or get frustrated and abandon the process.

    The Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) or Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) can solve financial aid issues for these students. This federal form takes about 30 minutes to complete online and can help students better understand their loan, grant, and work study options. However, many seniors don’t know about this important resource.

    The Puget Sound College and Career Network (PSCCN) has identified this gap in student post-secondary success, and is actively working to improve FAFSA completion rates. We are focusing on seven key school districts with historically low FAFSA participation rates: Auburn, Federal Way, Highline, Kent, Renton, Seattle, and Tukwila.
