71 more kids and families made a commitment to college by opening a 529 college savings plan. Currently, 70 percent of our students K-5 grade have a 529 plan. Parkview Health provided $25 to every K-3 student who signed up at school registration. In September, students will be seeking community champions to help support their college savings account. Kindergarten through 3rd graders will be visiting Manchester University during September College Go Week to celebrate the value of education. 529s can be used for accredited higher education programs (universities and vocational schools) and related expenses that are eligible for U.S. Dept. of Education student aid programs.
