HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- Families living on base with children enrolled at Bedford High School have until Oct. 31 to complete and submit the 2023-2024 Federal Impact Aid Survey for federally-connected students.

The Federal Impact Aid Program assists school districts that have many students enrolled from military installations or other federal properties.

“You have the opportunity to make a significant impact within our community by participating in the Federal Impact Aid Program,” said Col. Taona Enriquez, installation commander. “You’re not just ensuring our partners in Bedford receive the funding needed to support our children, but also enabling our families to receive support they deserve.” 

According to the school’s website, parents or guardians will receive a unique survey via email for each enrolled student via DocuSign. Officials say it is very important that all surveys are completed and electronically signed for each student.

Impact Aid replaces a portion of what Bedford, Massachusetts, citizens pay in property taxes to fund public education.

“Submitting these surveys really acknowledges the value of education Bedford Public Schools provides to our students and will help ensure the resources are there for our children,” said Laurel Wironen, Hanscom’s school liaison officer.

Any information gathered via the survey is confidential and only available to school and federal officials.

For information about the survey, parents or guardians may contact Kim Parmentier at 781-275-7508.

For additional information or questions, families can also contact Laurel.Wironen@us.af.mil.
