Overview of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) and Its Impact
ESSER III, which was originally authorized under the American Rescue Plan in February of 2021, came to Grand Prairie ISD in the 2021-2022 school year. Now in its second year of ESSER III implementation, the District continues to utilize these important federal funds to address learning loss that affected many students during the COVID-19 pandemic, attend to students’ social emotional needs, and ensure that District facilities are equipped and maintained adequately to protect the health of students and staff.
GPISD received more than $50 million in ESSER III funds, which are required to be allocated among the four domains shown below. These domains are applicable during all three years of ESSER III implementation.
Additional updates on ESSER III will be posted on this page.
