What’s the difference between Impact Aid and Heavy Impact Aid?

Impact Aid is operational funding that we receive year after year based on the number of military-connected students within our district; of note, the State of Kansas takes 70% of our impact aid, as we are 1 of 3 equalized states in the nation.

Heavy Impact Aid (HIA) is primarily used for capital outlay projects (think one-time money). HIA funds come directly to the district, with no percentage swept by the State of Kansas. Heavy Impact Aid is given to districts who meet the following criteria:  Military student population is at least 50%  Cost per pupil is lower than the state average  Tax rate is at least 95% of the State average
