The Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) would like to extend its appreciation to Hilo Intermediate School for participating in HIDOE’s pilot project of the online collection of Federal Impact Aid Survey cards. This will provide households with students at Hilo Intermediate School with the ability to complete the Federal Impact Aid Survey through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Moving towards an online, 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 complete surveys each year. We need your continued support to complete the survey.
Parents/Guardians will be able to submit their Federal Impact Aid Surveys online via Infinite Campus Parent Portal from October 14, 2020 through December 4, 2020. If you do not already have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal Account, please contact your student’s counselor for access information and instructions. Access to the parent portal is also available via the Campus Parent 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 at (808) 313-5300 for a paper copy of the survey.
