You PLAN in advance. You UNDERSTAND the financial aid process. You ACT early enough to be successful. Financial aid goes to the families who plan in advance—ideally before December 31 of the child’s sophomore year of high school. This course will teach you the concepts and strategies that will help you maximize your financial aid by understanding the process and how implementing strategies may increase a family’s eligibility even if you have a “high income” or own a business. The greatest amount of financial aid goes to the families who act during the years before college. Remember, procrastination equals less financial aid. All schools are not alike, so it is important to know your options and opportunities. A free financial aid analysis will be available to all attendees. 

Instructor: Dick Man.

As many of you may have heard, a decision was made at the February 17, 2022 school committee meeting with regard to the use of masks in Chelmsford Public School buildings.  

The Chelmsford Public Schools have accepted guidance that will no longer require masks as of Monday, February 28, 2022.  We will support an individual's choice to wear a mask and will promote a culture of acceptance and respect in the school community for an individual's need (or choice) to continue to mask.  

To help us keep our community safe, please remember that if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid19, please review the latest guidelines from the CDC to assure you are safe to attend.  If you have tested positive for Covid19, a mask MUST be worn in any school building on days 6-10 from the date of a positive test result.

If you have any questions, contact the Commed office and we will be happy to assist you.  We can be reached at 978-251-5151 or via email at
