Dear parent or guardian:
Seeking to support classroom teachers and students in their joint pursuit of academic excellence, Chesterfield County Public Schools continues to pursue a variety of potential sources of funding to support our work of preparing students for success in the 21st century. Please help by filling out the survey, which is part of an annual process to receive federal Impact Aid.
Impact Aid is a national funding program designed to help local school divisions that are financially burdened by federal activities: for example, localities that lose property tax revenue from tax-exempt federal property or that have large numbers of students whose parents work on federal property. Impact Aid becomes part of the school system’s general operating budget and supports instruction for all students. More information and digital versions of the survey in English and Spanish are available on the school division’s website (mychesterfieldschools.com).
All parents are asked to complete this survey. Even if you are not in the military or not employed on federal property, please check the applicable boxes and return the survey by November 15. All information will be confidential. We will use these surveys to determine the percentage of forms returned across the school system.
Please note that not all federal employees work on property that is owned by the federal government. (For example, post offices are not federal property.) A short list of nearby federal facilities is shown on the survey. If you work at a federal site not listed or if you are not sure whether your place of employment is on federal property, please give the name and full address of your employer.
Thank you for your continuing support of Chesterfield County Public Schools.
