In 2020 and 2021, Congress passed three stimulus bills that provide funding to the Elementary and Secondary Emergency Education Relief - or ESSER - Fund. States, including Texas, have distributed portions of those funds to school districts.
The American Rescue Plan passed in March 2021 provided supplemental funding known as ESSER III, and school districts were provided with funding for meaningful, evidence-based activities that help to close the educational learning gap caused by COVID-19. The total amount of funding that Van Vleck ISD received was $1,346,972. With the feedback from previous surveys and stakeholder input, the district has utilized these funds for additional support paraprofessionals that assist with student instruction, tutorials, communities in schools counselors to assist with social and emotional needs, technology, and staff professional development training.
Throughout the duration of the ESSER III Grant, VVISD continuously seeks all local stakeholders’ views on needs our district should address with the federal funding from COVID-19 relief bills passed by the U.S. Congress.
As required by ESSER III grant guidelines, Van Vleck ISD seeks stakeholder input to prepare to address the following educational and social emotional needs for our students:
● The academic impact of lost instructional time within the last three (3) years;
● The district’s response to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students; including, but not limited to: those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes students from low-income families, students of all nationalities, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students; and
● Mitigating safety measures for safe operations of schools for in-person learning.
