Hello GRS Family,
Golden Rule is launching an online survey May 26th through June 25th to gather input from the community – parents, students, staff, community members, etc. – in advance of the district developing the application plan to receive the allocated $4.6M.
The purpose of these funds is to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have on elementary and secondary schools and students. TEA strongly encourages school systems to plan for how to use these one-time federal funds expeditiously over the entire covered period.
The U.S. Department of Education’s (USDE) initial grant award notice to Texas makes immediately available two-thirds of the total federal appropriation to Texas under ARP (ESSER III). The remaining one-third of ARP (ESSER III) funds will be released to schools in the amounts indicated on the TEA allocation document and will also be supplemental to all other state funds.
By the formula, Golden Rule will receive a total of $4.6M – $3.1M immediately available, and $1.5M to be released at a later date upon approval of the state plan.
Golden Rule total expected allocation - $4.6M
One-time, non-renewable grant (funds)
Funds may be used through September 2024
There are defined limitations to what may be funded
Charter must review every 6 months, plans may evolve as needed
Our administration will be developing the complete application plan for funds based on staff and community input, along with district and campus leadership, and research of best practices.
