About $48.2 million in federal funds is flowing to Wichita Falls ISD for COVID relief. School officials have drawn back the curtain to show how the district is spending the money. 

The Texas Education Agency administers the federal funds through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief grant programs.

Conversations are ongoing about how to use funds as they are available. 

Who decides how to spend the funds?

WFISD officials met with stakeholders including teachers, students, parents and community members, as well as the District Advisory Committee in October to discuss how to spend the grants. 

WFISD Associate Superintendent Peter Griffiths said the ESSER Committee will meet every six months to talk about how the funding’s being used and possible changes to how it’s being spent.
