How is WFISD spending federal COVID relief funds?

About $48.2 million in federal funds is flowing to Wichita Falls ISD for COVID reduction. School officials have drawn again the curtain to present how the district is paying the income. 

The Texas Education and learning Agency administers the federal resources through the Elementary and Secondary College Emergency Aid grant plans.

Discussions are ongoing about how to use money as they are available. 

Who decides how to commit the funds?

WFISD officers fulfilled with stakeholders like instructors, students, parents and neighborhood customers, as effectively as the District Advisory Committee in October to focus on how to invest the grants. 

WFISD Associate Superintendent Peter Griffiths mentioned the ESSER Committee will fulfill each 6 months to converse about how the funding’s currently being used and achievable adjustments to how it’s becoming expended.
