Poth ISD ESSER II&III/ESSER SUPP Grant Information

On April 28, 2021, the Texas Education Agency announced the availability of $11.2 billion in federal funding made available to school districts through the Elementary and Secondary Emergency Education Relief (ESSER) III act under the American Rescue Plan. These additional federal funds are intended to help public schools address student learning loss and costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These one-time funds are intended to support a comprehensive learning recovery effort in Texas over the next three years. Due to federal requirements, two-thirds of the funds are available immediately under grants administered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), with the final one-third to be distributed contingent upon approval by the U.S. Department of Education. 

This page on our website will be used to communicate with our staff, parents, and community members about the use of ESSER III funds in Poth ISD, as well as information on the grant-required plan for the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services.  This plan will be reviewed and updated each six months during the grant period.
