Impact Aid Forms Due by Friday, October 19, 2018
Posted: October 2, 2018
All of our students received the Stafford County Public Schools Impact Aid Program Survey Form in Block 1 on Tuesday, October 2, 2018. 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 Friday, October 19, 2018. If you need another impact aid form, please contact our high school to receive a copy.
