Federal Impact Aid Survey (PL874)

Now Underway - October 1 - October 31, 2020

As we do each year, we are asking for your cooperation in filling out the attached survey form to meet the requirements of Public Law 874.  As entitled to by this law, Bedford submits a Federal Impact Aid application that depends upon this data collection.  The Town of Bedford receives a substantial sum of money under this provision, which lowers the cost of education to the taxpayers.

Please answer all of the questions on the attached survey form accurately and completely.  Reimbursement is made for all eligible students on a per pupil basis.  It is very important that all forms are completed and returned for each student.  A new form must be completed and turned in every year.  If you have any questions, please contact the Business Office at (781) 275-7708.

We thank you very much for your assistance with this important annual survey.


Philip Conrad, Superintendent of Schools
