FEDERAL IMPACT AID FORMS

Under Impact Aid Section 7003, the Yelm Community School District may be entitled to federal funds for the operation and maintenance of our school facilities and to enrich our school programs. These funds are provided to school districts to compensate for local tax dollars that are lost as the result of non-taxable federal payrolls or properties.


We will be sending you the form through email to complete using Adobe e-sign. You may also download the form and fax to (360) 458-2469 or drop off at any school location or the district office.


These are NOT the same as the Family Military Status forms families filled out at the beginning of the year. Thank you for your time and prompt consideration with this matter as this greatly impacts our students.
