ESSER Information

ESSER Information

Data shows that the pandemic has had a significant impact on student learning, both across the country and in Tolar ISD.

Tolar ISD is launching a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to help determine how it should potentially spend additional federal dollars to address unfinished learning and COVID-19 recovery.

The American Rescue Plan signed into law in March by President Joe Biden included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for school districts across the country, which is the single largest investment in federal elementary and secondary education in the nation’s history. Tolar ISD has applied to receive some of that additional funding.

Educators: Take the 2023-24 Survey

Students: Take the 2023-24 Survey

All parents, district employees, students and community members are urged to complete a survey to better help the district determine what to prioritize with the potential ESSER funds. School districts are limited what they can use ESSER funds to support.
