ESSER II Stakeholder Survey
Kaleigh Martinez


Benavides  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. Benavides ISD will be applying  to receive some of that additional funding.

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