The Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) would like to extend its appreciation to Roosevelt High School for participating in HIDOE's pilot project of the online collection of Federal Impact Aid Survey cards. This will provide parents with students at Roosevelt High School the ability to complete the Federal Impact Aid Survey form through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Moving towards an on line, paperless system will promote efficiency and accuracy of data collection.
Federal Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts who have lost revenue due to Federal properties exemption from local property taxes. Financial assistance is determined by calculating the concentration of students who: reside on military bases, low-rent housing properties, Indian lands, and other Federal properties; or have parents in the uniformed services; or have parents employed on eligible Federal properties.
Hawaii's Impact Aid funding is determined by the number of eligible parents/guardians who complete the survey form. Hawaii Public Schools benefit from $35-$45 million a year in Federal Impact Aid, thanks to all the families who completed the surveys each year. We need your continued support to complete the survey.
Beginning October 14, 2020, Parents/Guardians will log into the Infinite Campus Portal and complete the Impact Aid survey. Parents/Guardians are to respond to questions with a retroactive date of October 14. 2020. Parents/Guardians who have children at different schools that may not be participating in the on line pilot project must complete paper surveys that are sent home via other schools. Federal funding is allocated on a per student basis.
Parents/Guardians will be able to submit their Federal Impact Aid Surveys online via Infinite Campus Parent Portal from Octobe1· 14, 2020 thru December 4, 2020. If you do not already have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal Account, please contact the school for access information and instructions. Access to the parent portal is also available via a mobile app for any Apple iOS or Android device.
If you are unable to complete the online Federal Impact Aid Survey by December 4, 2020, please contact the school office at 307-0502 for a paper survey. Thank you in advance for participating in this online Impact Aid pilot project!
