COVID Relief Funding
Wylie ISD received the allotted funds from the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021. The purpose of this funding is to assist districts with the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on schools, and continues to have, including safe operations and addressing student learning needs.
Wylie ISD collected feedback and suggestions from stakeholders in the spring and summer of 2021. Stakeholder groups have identified and prioritized district needs, which were presented at the Board Meeting on June 21, 2021.
