Impact Aid Surveys
Impact Aid Form Now Available - Emails have been sent to families! Stafford County Public Schools is committed to creating unique learning opportunities for students by securing all possible sources of funding. Our school division is eligible for Impact Aid funds due to the high number of federal and military families in our area. Forms were distributed through a direct Qualtrics survey for EACH CHILD in your home. Your completion of the survey for each child ensures Stafford Schools receives the full amount of federal funding offered to school divisions.
Stafford students with federal connections are:
- children of active duty U.S. uniformed-services personnel or foreign military
- children who live on federal property
- children whose parents work on federal property
Student ID numbers are required to complete the form, and are available in ParentVue.
GES is striving for 100% completion!
