Federal Impact Aid (Public Law 81-874) Pupil-Parent Survey

  • The Federal Impact Aid program provides financial assistance to school districts that enroll federally connected students.  The funds secured from the program become part of the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) general operating budget and help reduce the amount of local monies needed to provide a quality education for your children.  

    LCPS is eligible to receive Impact Aid funds if either parent or guardian is on active duty in the uniformed services or working on federally-owned property located in Virginia.  Individuals working on federally-owned property in Virginia may be employed by a private business or contractor, or the federal government.

    For SY22-23, as part of the verification and registration process in ParentVUE, we are requesting parents and guardians to complete the online survey form if applicable.

    An LCPS Impact Aid Form 2024 form (Spanish form) will be available for those parents and guardians who prefer to submit the requested information with a paper survey; the completed form may then be mailed to LCPS' Business and Finance at 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, Virginia 20148 or provide the completed form to the school and they will forward.

    Please complete the survey by no later than January 26, 2024, for each LCPS-enrolled child in your household. 

    All information collected is confidential and will be used only for the stated purpose of determining the amount of funding available to LCPS.  

    Should you have questions, or need more information regarding the Impact Aid Pupil-Parent Survey, please contact the Division of Business and Financial Services, Accounting Division at or 571-252-1220.
