Family Income Survey- Documentation/Data Needed for the State of Maryland
Thank you for your support!
We may have an opportunity to secure additional services in reading and mathematics for
our students. You can help us by filling out the Title I Private Schools Family Income
Survey. Please complete this survey for each of your children in Grades PreK 4 through
Grade 12 that attend our school. The completed survey should be returned to your child’s
classroom teacher by September 23, 2019.
To receive additional funding to provide these services, pertinent information must be
shared with your local public school system and the Maryland State Department of
Education. Providing us with the information requested on the survey may help to
increase or maintain the educational services we are now providing our students.
The information requested on this survey will remain at our school and is confidential.
When completing the Title I Private Schools Family Income Survey, please be sure to
select your county or city of residence at the top of the survey and answer questions A
and B. If you are required to complete section C, please be sure to select the box that
reflects the city or county in which you reside.
Thank you for your support and cooperation.

The HSPT Online Registration system is set to open September 10th for students to begin registering.
The online registration link is: Baltimore.stsusers.com

All credit card payments collected will be forwarded to the school in the form of a single check after testing takes place. (STS does not keep any portion of student credit card payments.) If a student wishes to pay via cash or check instead of credit card, they should pay your school directly. (Do not send cash or check payments to STS.)
