ESSER Grant Meeting May 18th in HS Library

Updated January 20, 2022.

Zavalla ISD, in consultation with community stakeholders, plans to use the American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds known as ESSER III, to maintain operations and continue to employ existing staff through hiring additional general education teachers and custodial staff. Funds will also be used to purchase sanitization and cleaning supplies, along with doors and windows, to improve ventilation and prevent the risk of spread of the coronavirus. The district will address the needs of students who may have experienced learning loss due to an interruption in educational services and to meet any social emotional needs, through filing a position to serve students identified as needing special education services and a position to provide small-group instruction in the library, along with a nurse. These funds will be used from the summer of 2021 through the end of September 2024.
