Dear CMCSS Parents and Guardians, 

On November 2 you received an electronic form from CMCSS regarding the Federal Impact Aid survey. This survey is crucial for our school system to receive federal funding to support school programs. Please take three minutes to complete this survey.

Federal Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property. Federal Impact Aid is set up for school districts where federally owned lands (such as Fort Campbell, government buildings, TVA steam plants, subsidized housing, etc.) are located. Its intent is to help offset the lost property taxes that would have been collected if businesses or privately owned residences were located there instead. Federal Impact Aid does not provide an amount of funding for every military dependent child who is served in our school system.

This survey is sent each year by the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System to collect data about federally connected students. The funding formula that determines how much money a school system will receive hinges on accurate information that is collected on the survey.

It is crucial that parents complete the forms. And the information must be what is accurate on Nov. 2. 

All information is confidential and has no effect on personal taxes or on those who live in subsidized housing. 

Please complete the survey by Nov. 12, 2020.
