  • Impact Aid Forms Due by Monday, October 21, 2019 

    Posted:  September 28, 2019

    All of our students will receive the Stafford County Public Schools Impact Aid Program Survey Form in Block 1 on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.  This survey must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian for each student in your household that attends our public schools.

    Each year, the presence of federal activity in Virginia affects the Stafford County Public Schools operating budget.  Due to the large federal presence and the tax exemptions that these federally-connected personnel, property businesses, and government agencies qualify for, our school division qualifies for federal impact aid funds.  Your assistance is needed in identifying students with federal connections that qualify for the Impact Aid Federal Grant Program.

    Please complete, sign, and have your student(s) return the impact aid form to our high school no later than Monday, October 21, 2019.  If you need another impact aid form, please contact our high school to receive a copy. 

    If you need to download a version of the impact aid form or survey letter in a different language, point your Web browser to

    We have reported to our school division the Class Websites mobile app issues that users are experiencing when utilizing the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app on their device.  These issues are being investigated further.  The issues explained below are division-wide and not just isolated to our high school.

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app may experience an error message when selecting the Class Websites button.  The user will be unable to view any class websites through the mobile app only.

    Reported Issue #2:

    Users of the StudentVUE/ParentVUE mobile app will be unable to view multiple file attachments that are posted by a teacher on the class pages when selecting the Class Websites button for a student’s courses.  This issue is present when a user is able to access the Class Websites button from the mobile app (see Reported Issue #1).  This issue only appears in the mobile app.
