Grant Application Notice
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United State Department of Education (USDE) released three grants for school districts to apply for through the Texas Education Agency (TEA) known as CARES ESSER I; CRRSA ESSER II; and ARP ESSER III. New Braunfels ISD applied for the CARES ESSER I; ARP ESSER III and the CRRSA ESSER II grant.
In an effort to engage all community stakeholders in meaningful consultation regarding the allocation of ESSER III funds, the District initiated multiple opportunities for feedback. Such feedback was solicited and received from various organization and groups, including but not limited to, parents, students, community members, administrators, teachers, school staff, school leaders and civil rights organizations. Additionally, stakeholders representing the interests of children with disabilities, English language learners, children in foster care, migrant students, and other underserved students were surveyed. Planning meetings, including those of the DEIC, district and campus administrators, and the June 21 Board Meeting, were conduits to solicit feedback and public comment. Additionally, a districtwide survey was distributed, as well as one to the principals. Results from such meetings and surveys are documented and summarized below:
