Lost and Found: Please take a look at our Lost n Found, or have your child check while they are at school. Items that are not claimed by Thursday, December 22 will be taken to Goodwill over the Christmas break. If you see something that belongs to your child, please call the main office and we can make sure it gets sent home with them.

Impact Aid


Every year, Central Kitsap School District applies for federal Impact Aid funding. These funds compensate CKSD for the loss of local tax dollars from tax exempt federal property.

The results of our Impact Aid survey help support our request for these federal funds. This survey is critical to our district’s resources for students.


You now have the option to either complete this form online (Log into PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the online forms for your students), or complete a paper copy. Please have your student turn in this form to the main office.
