2014 Ready, Set, School! Program - Preparing Kids to Succeed

IFCS’ Ready, Set, School! Program helps hundreds of children each year succeed in school.

We use a priority number system that tracks how many times a family has used this program in the past.  A first-time client who has never received Ready, Set, School! will be at the top of the priority list.  Due to the priority number system and depending on how many sponsors are available to sponsor children, we cannot guarantee that every family will be sponsored.

To register for Ready, Set, School! please bring the following paperwork to IFCS:

First-Time Clients Need
  • Picture ID of adult registering child(ren).
  • Proof of address dated in the past 30 days with adult’s name registering on it (ex., Xcel bill).
  • Proof of income dated in the past 30 day (ex., most recent paycheck stub, social security benefit, etc.)  Call IFCS to check other acceptable documentation.
  • Copy or original birth certificate or school ID for every child(ren) being registered for K-8.
Returning Clients
  • Picture ID of adult registering child(ren).
