The following information serves as a summary fulfilling the annual reporting requirements per the Indian Policy and Procedures document:
The District first applied for Impact Aid in 2013 after the funding source was brought to our attention by a local community group. In the latest application (submitted Jan 2017), the District had 1,090 students listed as eligible for funding due to their residence being located on the lands of the Seneca Nation of Indians Allegany Territory.
Impact Aid funding helps educate federally connected children. These may be the children of members of the uniformed services, children who live on Indian Lands, children who live in federally subsidized housing or children whose parents work on federal property. In the case of the Salamanca City Central School District, it is the children who reside on Indian Lands (the Seneca Nation of Indians Allegany Territory) who count as eligible under the guidelines and regulations of Impact Aid and attend the Salamanca City Central School District.
