College Options College Spring Break Tour!

College OPTIONS is taking students to Sonoma State, UC Davis, Chico State and Butte College for our Spring Break College Tour to take place April 8-9.  Information and required forms can be picked up from the front office.  Field trip forms need to be returned to the front office by Thursday, March 26.  Priority will be given to students in the Educational Talent Search program, but all interested students should apply.  Since this field trip will take place after spring break, all applicants should be doing reasonably well in their classes and have all detentions cleared.
