The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III) will provide over $86 million to Killeen ISD over the next three years. The Texas Education Agency requires KISD to submit a Use of Funds Plan as part of our grant application for ESSER III funding and to review and revise this plan through the life of the grant. Killeen ISD is seeking input from stakeholders across our community. Your feedback is valuable and will help us in the initial development and later review and revision of our plan.

The Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan, also referred to as the KISD Public Health Guide, was developed with the intent to provide continuity of services in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Killeen ISD ensures that the interventions to be implemented will respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English language learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students. This plan takes into account guidance from the Center for Disease Control and the Texas Education Agency with the goal of keeping students and staff safe while making every attempt to keep schools open all year. Killeen ISD is continuing to seek stakeholder input and will update this plan every six months through the life of the grant.
