BOISE — Students will be receiving postcards from the state board of education starting tomorrow, both physically at their mailbox and virtually in their inbox.
The "It's not too late" campaign - reaches senior students who haven't used the Next Steps Idaho; a program to help students decide what to do after high school.

The post card includes information about college programs, degree options and FAFSA. The state board of education says these efforts are helping more students apply for federal financial aid, which can be barrier for students furthering education.

"Making sure that young people know there's an option for all of them after high school, whether it's a short-term career technical program or starting part-time at a college or university, it really is that kind of message it's not too late," said college and career program manager Byron Yankey.
