SMCPS Distribute Impact Aid Survey Forms

LEONARDTOWN, MD – St. Mary’s County Public Schools are heavily impacted by federally-connected students, those whose parents/legal guardians work on federal property in Maryland, live on federal property in Maryland, and/or are active duty military personnel. St. Mary’s County Public Schools receives federal grant funds to operate and maintain the schools for federally-connected students.

To receive the federal funds, the United States Department of Education (USDE) requires the school system to survey each student to determine eligibility for such funds. It is important to complete the survey when your student brings the form home. A separate survey must be completed for each student. Parents are reminded USDE will not accept abbreviations or acronyms, so please write out the complete words, including worksite titles and addresses.

The information has to be based on the survey date, September 30, 2018, and the information is confidential. All forms with complete information, signature, and date are due back to schools by Friday, October 19, 2018.

For more information or any questions, please contact your students’ school principal.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
