ESSER III Program

In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act, also known 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, Klein ISD 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.

Although many details and requirements have not yet been finalized by the State in receiving ESSER funds, it is possible that over the next four years Klein ISD may receive nearly $73 million dollars to help reimburse, resume and recover from the COVID-19 global pandemic.  We are interested in your feedback on how these funds should be spent.
