ESSER Grant Letter

Hello GRS Family,
Golden Rule is launching an online survey May 25th through June 2nd 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.

School Re-Opening on Monday, Feb. 22nd

Dear Golden Rule Families,

First, we hope everyone has been staying warm and starting to see the light at the end of the storm. Many members of our GRS family – both staff and student families – experienced power outages for days, frozen pipes and water damage, plus other issues during the recent weather. Our facilities have experienced some issues as well and we have worked hard to repair and restore all systems.

Second, our goal is to have a regular school day beginning on Monday, February 22. We truly miss our students/staff and are anxious to try to get back to our everyday routines. Special thanks to ALL the staff addressing facility needs, and those who have come in to help their schools be ready to re-open!

Estimadas familias de Golden Rule,

Primero, esperamos que todos se encuentren bien y recuperandose despues de la tormenta. Muchos miembros de nuestra familia de Golden Rule sufrieron cortes de energía durante días, tuberías congeladas y daños por agua, además de otros problemas durante el clima reciente. Nuestras escuelas también padecieron algunos problemas y hemos trabajado duro para reparar y restaurar todos los sistemas.

En segundo lugar, nuestra meta es tener un día escolar regular a partir del lunes 22 de febrero. Realmente extrañamos a nuestros estudiantes / personal y estamos ansiosos por tratar de volver a nuestras rutinas diarias. ¡Un agradecimiento especial a TODO el personal que atiende las necesidades de las escuelas y a aquellos que han venido para ayudar a que sus escuelas estén listas para volver a abrir!
