Don't Wait Till the Last Minute for Book Vouchers

The first week of school is very hectic here at the Fast Track office. Why don't you come into the office now to pick up your book voucher? 

WIA students: Your voucher is probably already waiting for you, as long as you registered for classes that are on your approved ed plan.

CalWORKs students: Your book request form was sent to your worker on or before Monday the 28th. We have received some vouchers from the county already. Call us or stop by to see if yours is here. 479-6344.

Spring Book Vouchers

This semester we are trying a new process in an attempt to decrease the work load for you and us.

There is no need for you to come into the FTTW office to begin the book voucher process. Our office will provide a book request form to your county ETS (case worker) using your approved ed plan and current registration. We will only request required books for these classes. If your ed plan does not match your class schedule please see one of the FTTW counselors to update your ed plan and/or class schedule.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at (831) 479-6344.
