Can your high school help your kid meet deadlines?

If your kid can't get a transcript sent to a college in time to meet early application deadlines, you could be losing money. Big money in the form of scholarships is at stake.
While some colleges are  flexible about receiving transcripts, others are not. High schools also vary in how flexible they are in terms of their transcript request deadlines.
High school policies that require a great deal of advance notice in order to get a transcript sent to a college are likely to stifle the number of scholarships students at a high school will receive from colleges. 
Student and parent awareness of college deadlines and how long it takes to get a transcript is often lacking as is the ability of some high schools to adapt to do what it takes to accomplish their mission during crunch periods.
This is one of those pressure points where parents need to work with their PTA to encourage reasonable school policies. Parents and counselors also need to work with high school seniors to encourage them get things done in a timely manner.
When students run into roadblocks, parents need to know about their problems and help out. If you have a child in high school, find out what the transcript policies are at your school so that you don't miss out on scholarships that could reduce college costs for your family.
