Impact Aid Funds
The federal government makes funds available to school districts that have land which is deemed federal land. This land cannot be taxed locally by school districts; therefore the federal government has provided funds to school districts.
Some of the major types of federal land identified through the Impact Aid Program are usually military bases, federally sponsored recreational areas and Indian Trust Property.
Money received by a school district for federal land in their district is put in the general fund. As required by Impact Aid rules and regulations, local Indian parents are given the opportunity to address the school board to give their opinions or views as to what is needed by Indian students. The school district determines the extent that Indian children are participating in all school programs on an equal basis.
The hearing gives the Indian parents an opportunity to review the program, provide input on the needs of their children and voice their views. The hearing is scheduled to be held during the school board’s monthly meeting, Monday, December 13, 2021, at 6:00 p.m.
This past school year, the Calumet School District used Impact Aid Funds for the following expenses, salaries, fuel, Impact Aid dues & fees.
