Attention All Platt Parents
It has been brought to our attention that parents (including Platt parents) have recently been scammed by a company in Texas which offers ONLINE college and financial aid assistance to students and their parents. These parents are asked to sign a contract that locks them into a twelve month agreement. They are REQUIRED to pay $175 per month as a result of signing this contract. We urge ALL PARENTS to CONTACT A SCHOOL COUNSELOR if they need assistance regarding college and/or financial aid. The counselor will help them seek answers to their questions. Please do not pay for any service that assists you with seeking assistance with college or financial aid.
