ESSER III Funds
ESSER III Funds Survey
In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act, also know as the ARP Act, was signed into law, dedicating funds for K-12 schools through the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) III funds. As a result, YISD is eligible to receive one-time federal funds through the ESSER III program to be spent prior to September 30, 2024 to address expenses and learning loss associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic. YISD is seeking input on how to utilize the funds to best meet the needs of YISD students and families.

Yoakum ISD Athletic Pictures Needed
Yoakum ISD is in the process of updating team championship pictures as well as pictures of former Yoakum High School graduates who attended college and continued their athletic careers. The pictures are being digitally uploaded and eventually will be viewed on the screen in the new Bulldog Gym foyer.
Pictures of team championships (district through state) from the fall of 2013 thru current year, as well as any 2013-2018 Yoakum High School graduate who went on to play in college are needed. No particular pose is necessary; typically, the athlete is pictured in their college uniform and any listings of their accomplishments included.
Pictures and information can be turned in to the Yoakum ISD Administration Office at 315 East Gonzales Street.
Please note: Pictures will not be returned.
