Data shows that the pandemic has had a significant impact on student learning, both across the country and in Harlingen CISD.

Harlingen CISD is launching a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to help determine how it should potentially spend additional federal dollars to address student learning and COVID-19 recovery.
The American Rescue Plan signed into law in March by President Joe Biden included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for school districts across the country, which is the single largest investment in federal elementary and secondary education in the nation’s history. Harlingen CISD will apply to receive some of that additional funding.
See the COVID19 Protocol Document, which will continue to be updated throughout the summer as needed based on updated recommendations.


Survey All parents, district employees, students and community members are urged to complete a survey to help the district determine what to prioritize with the potential ESSER funds. School districts are limited what they can use ESSER funds to support.
