On October 16, 2018, your student will bring home a Federal Impact Aid Program Survey Card. Federal Impact Aid is a program that provides funding from the federal government to local school districts for students:
• Who are connected to a military family;
• Who live in military or government housing communities; and/or
• Whose families work on federal properties.
Please complete the Federal Impact Aid Program Survey Card. Directions are located on the back of the card. Please sign and date the card and return it to your child’s school as soon as possible. Information provided will be treated confidentially. Thank you for your cooperation with this very important process!

One-fifth of all Americans have disabilities, including almost one million people in Virginia. During October, Disability History and Awareness Month creates greater public awareness and emphasizes the importance of full inclusion in schools and communities for individuals with disabilities.
Join us this month at the first annual Walk and Roll for Disability Awareness. This free, inclusive event is designed for the entire family and a great way to celebrate our differences while supporting those with disabilities. Click here for more information and to register.
In an effort to promote awareness of school bullying, the month of October is designated as Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying can cause school absenteeism, mental and physical stress, poor school performance, and poor self-esteem. Our school board members, superintendent, teachers, and parents play a critical role in creating a climate in Chesapeake where bullying is not tolerated. It has been proven when adults and children stand together, bullying ends.
