Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Grant Programs

Southside ISD is getting ESSER funding. This means money from the federal government that is flowing through the state ( TEA) to the school district.  Below is a breakdown of the three-phase process.  As monies become available, before your schools here at Southside ISD CAN GET THOSE MONIES WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.  There is a link to a presentation below with details and a link to the survey. Be honest and take your time asking for real needs so the school district knows how to use the money.

ESSER grant funding is authorized in three pieces of legislation. As a result, the ESSER programs are administered by TEA as separate grant programs. An ESSER side-by-side is under development.
