Impact Aid Information

Impact Aid Background

Our families in the St. Mary's County Public School System are entitled to receive funds from the federal government for the operation of schools.  The funding is based on an accurate count of students whose parents or guardians work and/or live on federal property. All of the information collected is strictly confidential and used only for the stated purpose.  The Impact Aid grant application provides information on the numbers and locations of federally-connected students attending our schools.

Each year we ask all families to update your contact information on the Emergency Information Form and to complete the Federal Impact Aid Program Survey Form. 

St. Mary’s County Public Schools System is asking families to submit their Impact Aid information online via digital format  which can be located in the Home Access Center (HAC)Directions on accessing the form can be found here.


If you have any questions about the the Impact Aid Program Survey process in general, please feel free to contact your student’s school secretary. 

Online Emergency Information Update

Effective communication is critical to the success of St. Mary’s County Public Schools (SMCPS). This will be crucial not only for emergencies but for our ability to communicate with families in general. Online Emergency Information Update Forms are now available through the student’s Home Access Center (HAC). Once logged in, directions to access the online form can be found HERE.  A video with instructions is available HERE. It is vital that all information is updated in eSchool. The deadline for the online submission of Emergency Information Update forms is November 14th, 2023.
