TEXAS SCHOOLS TO RECEIVE ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO ADDRESS LEARNING LOSS AND HELP DISTRICTS RECOVER

AUSTIN — State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, today announced the release of $11.2 billion in new federal funds to help public schools address student learning loss and costs incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Helping students who are falling behind is the most critical mission in public education right now and likely for months to come,” Senator Nelson, a former teacher, said. “These funds will help our schools plan for an aggressive summer school effort. These additional resources will help address COVID learning loss and get students back on track with their academic pursuits.”
