The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III) provides over $12,000,000,000 to the State of Texas for public education, including over $11,000,000,000 directly to Local Education Agencies (school districts). In order for Galena Park ISD to access the total entitlement of $40,000,000, the District must submit and obtain approval of a district-level plan.
Galena Park ISD intends to apply for a grant under this fund, and our efforts to identify the needs of our students and school community are shared here.
Seeking input from diverse stakeholders across the district is essential to developing plans for the use of approximately $40,000,000 in ARP ESSER III district-level discretionary funds that are responsive to the needs of students, families, and educators.
Please submit any feedback via our Stakeholder Engagement Survey by 11:59 p.m. on July 22, 2021, to be reviewed for inclusion into Galena Park ISD’s ESSER III District Plan application.
