Harlingen CISD is eligible to receive one-time federal funds through the American Rescue Plan. This included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) 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.
Data shows that the pandemic has had a significant impact on student learning, both across the country and in Harlingen CISD.
The following two documents below provide information on HCISD's use of ESSER III funds:
|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.|
Additionally, all stakeholders were invited to a Zoom Webinar on June 3rd at 5:30pm to learn more about this funding opportunity and provide input.
