    Hey everyone, (class of 2015 to 2019)

    Just a reminder that if you are going to college in Idaho you can apply for scholarships.  The State Board of Education is using a new platform and you will need to create a new account and update your information when you apply.  Link is below.

    If you need your EDUID# please call the counseling office at 208-365-6323 and we will give it to you over the phone.  It is like a social security number for education and we can't email it to you.  This number is different than your old lunch number.

    If you are going to CWI, CSI or NIC you need to fill out this form, with any additional documents requested, and send it to the Gem County Courthouse. Certificate of Residency Form
