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. Please click on the following link to complete the survey: ESSER Funds Survey
