On October 3, 2023, we will be sending home an "Impact Aid" form with students for families to complete and return to school.
Every year the Bethel School District must apply for Federal Impact Aid funds from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds compensate the District for the loss of local tax dollars from tax exempt federal property in our area. The Bethel School District receives approximately $150,000 in Impact Aid funding each year.
The federal funds from our Impact Aid survey help all our students and are used for basic education programs districtwide. It is critical that we receive this completed form information from every household in the District.
The school district only reports the number of students living with families who live on and/or work on federal property. We do not report information about individual students in the Federal Impact Aid form.
It is important to complete all appropriate sections, sign and date the form.
These records are kept strictly confidential and only used to apply for Federal Impact Aid. Please see the letter below provided from Joint Base Lewis-McCord.
Please return your completed form to your student’s school.
