Tuition Assistance/Financial Aid - New Look

This year SMSA is partnering with School and Student Services (SSS), formerly TADS, for our families to apply for tuition assistance/financial aid for 2021-2022. The process for families to apply is the same but the look is new. 


To have this new program running smoothly and efficiently, SSS has informed SMSA that the new program will be available to families at the end of March. Information regarding the exact date for the SSS link to be available will be published in the eLedger and on our website.
