Socorro ISD Needs Parents' Help to Qualify for Funding
SOCORRO- Socorro ISD is asking parents to complete the "Impact Aid" survey to help the district qualify for thousands of dollars in Impact Aid funding.
We are asking that every parent take a few minutes to complete the Impact Aid survey and return it to their student’s school,” said Dr. Xavier De La Torre, Superintendent of Schools. “The money is available for our schools, but only if we are able to account for the qualifying population.”
The District receives funds from the Federal Government for every child whose parent(s) is on military active duty, is employed by the government, works on Federal property or lives on federally owned property.
Since 2008, the District has increased its outreach to parents regarding the census resulting in vast funding gains. In 2008 the District received $8,403; in 2009 the amount grew to over $97,746; and, in 2010 the District’s campaign helped more than triple the Federal Impact Aid funding, bringing in $343,702.
“It is our goal this year to receive a completed Impact Aid form for every student,” De La Torre added. “Every qualifying household will help us in continuing to provide our students with a world-class education, especially during this time of state and federal funding reductions.”
