• The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) III was created through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) of 2021. ESSER III provides approximately $122 billion to state education agencies to distribute funds for safely and fully reopening schools to meet the student's academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Everman ISD has applied for the ESSER III grant and will be posting required Texas Education Agency documents on this webpage, as well as general information relating to ESSER funds.
