Source: Data collected from LEA application for Impact Aid Section 8003 payments.
Next Data Available: September 2006
Limitations: Data are self-reported by Impact Aid applicants. Assessment of the condition of school facilities may differ depending on the judgment of the individual responding.
Explanation: The program did not meet its FY 2005 target. The responses to the data collection are subjective and ratings may vary depending on the person completing the survey. Annual performance may experience significant changes due to factors such as emergency facilities conditions, administrative turnover, etc. Additionally, according to feedback from the districts, the funding provided by the formula program is insufficient to address any major facilities issues. Additional funds for larger projects are available through the discretionary construction program, but are limited.
