Cut Bank School District
FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT 7231
Federal Impact Funds
Federal impact funds have been provided to local districts as a supplement to taxes and other revenue sources. Such funds contribute to the development and implementation of a basic education program for all students enrolled in the public schools. Amendments to Title VIII ESEA, a/k/a Impact Aid, provide additional funds for schools with eligible students when the District gives assurance that tribes and parents of Indian students have been afforded the opportunity to make recommendations regarding the needs of their children and to be involved in the planning and development of the basic education program.
Recognizing that the Board is the ultimate authority in defining the educational program of that District, the Superintendent shall establish procedures to assure the involvement of the tribe and parents of Indian students in the development of the basic education program.
