Additional Resources to Support Our Military Families
Impact Aid - Under the Impact Aid Program (Title VIII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act), each locality is compensated for federally connected children who impact a school district’s financial base because of military bases, federal installations or federal activity within and surrounding their locality. Due to the large federal and military presence in Virginia, Spotsylvania County Schools loses a portion of operating revenues that would normally be generated through the collection of local taxes. Each October SCPS requests the assistance of our Military Families in identifying federally connected students for our Impact Aid Program. A letter and the Impact Aid Survey form are sent home. By completing this form, our Military Families enable Spotsylvania County Public Schools to receive revenue assistance for each student whose parent(s) are on active duty military service (not retired) or employed on federal property.
