Please complete the 2023-24 Federal Impact Aid survey

Impact your child’s learning by completing the 2023-24 Federal Impact Aid survey.

A quick survey that takes five minutes to fill out can generate thousands of dollars in funding for textbooks, materials, hiring staff and educators and more military student support. 

All parents who have children enrolled in the Peninsula School District received a Parent Square message inviting them to complete the survey.
