ESSER III Plan
Seminole ISD is excited to welcome everyone back to school in August. We can’t wait to be reunited through In-Person learning with the best students and staff in the state. It will be refreshing to have many of our school activities return to normal. SISD’s Return to In-Person Instruction & Continuity of Services Plan provides details about the procedures and safety requirements that have been created for the well-being of students, staff, and visitors. Please note that this information is subject to change based on federal/state guidance and executive orders. As guidelines and orders change, Seminole ISD will adjust, but rest assured, our focus will always remain on doing what is best for students and staff.
Seminole ISD will be applying for CRRSA, ESSER II, ARP, and ESSER III funding. The purpose of ESSER II is to prevent, prepare for or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of ESSER III is to help reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. The plan that follows is a draft intended to outline Seminole ISD’s planned safety measures for the 2021-2022 school year while continuing to provide an excellent educational experience. It is meant to satisfy the requirements for accepting additional funds through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund.
