Student–Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid

We thank those of you who have already turned in your form.

All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by November 5. All results are confidential

Returning this form is important because FCPS anticipates receiving approximately $3 million in unrestricted funds from the Impact Aid grant. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers.  For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's homeroom teacher. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3.Additional information about the Impact Aid Survey can be found at
