Flour Bluff ISD NOTICE OF INTENT TO APPLY FOR FEDERAL FUNDSAND REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

Flour Bluff ISD wishes to announce the District’s intent to submit an application for federal funds appropriated to the State of Texas for public education purposes under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) Fund.  The District is assembling a committee of professional teaching staff, parents, students and community members to provide feedback on the district’s ESSER III application and tentative plans for use of funds.

ESSER III funds:
$6,505,906 (estimate)- To be expended over a 3-year period (based on TEA information received on April 28, 2021)

Purpose:                     
To respond to the pandemic and to address student learning loss as a result of COVID-19 by providing evidence-based interventions, such as summer learning, extended day comprehensive after-school programs, and/or extended school year programs that respond to students’ academic, social, and emotional needs and address disproportionate impact of coronavirus on student populations as defined in ESEA, Title I, Part A; students experiencing homelessness; and youth in foster care.
