Impact Aid


Federal Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts that have lost tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt federal property, or experienced increased expenditures due to the enrollment of federally connected children. Active duty military, contractors and civilian employees who work on federal property and those who live in federal housing are eligible to participate. Money received from Federal Impact Aid is used to offset costs on campuses with federally connected students. For more information, read the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools (NAFIS) Parent FAQs

Impact Aid Surveys are completed annually and all federally connected students must submit a new form each year. Our annual Impact Aid Survey takes place each October. Families have the option to complete one electronic survey per household or individual paper survey per child.  Parents will need their child's student identification number to complete the electronic survey. The student ID number can be found on your child's report card or by contacting the office staff at your assigned campus.

2020-2021 Impact Aid Survey & ESSA Military Student Identifier

Moore County School system's 2020-2021 Impact Aid Survey will begin on Tuesday, October 20th. Survey's should be turned in by Wednesday, October 20th. All federally-connected students will receive an Impact Aid Survey Packet. All MCS families will receive the electronic survey via email if they have an email address listed in PowerSchool. Families have the choice to complete either one electronic survey per household or one paper survey per child. Electronic surveys will automatically be delivered to individual campuses. Parents will need to return paper surveys to the child's assigned campus.  

MCS has combined the Impact Aid Survey with the Every Student Succeeds Act Military Student Identifier form. The district is asking all military-connected families, regardless of their status, to participate eliminating the need for a second survey in December.
