Azle ISD ESSER Community Survey

  • June 2021
    The most recent COVID relief bill is allocating federal money to the state for school districts. ESSER III funding is intended to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. It is possible that we may not know the final amounts for many months. However, given the size of these allocations, it is imperative that we plan NOW for how we would potentially spend our allocation. 
    Please give us your feedback on the questions below to help Azle ISD grow closer to our goal of providing a world-class education to every student. Azle ISD will use the input we receive from our community as we plan to spend federal grant money from ESSA, ESSA II, and ESSER III, all federal grant programs we plan to apply for in the coming months.
