    The ESSER III Grant was authorized through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) signed into law in March 2021. During the summer of 2021, Denton ISD engaged in feedback processes with the staff, teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community members, including groups such as civil rights organizations, disability rights, organizations, and stakeholders of children with disabilities, emergent bilinguals, children experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and other groups that are underserved. Examples of our feedback processes included: a survey, input via the website, discussion at a Board of Trustees Meeting and meaningful dialogue among stakeholder groups. The plan was developed based on the feedback received. Denton ISD was awarded $22,718,562 to be expended through Sept. 30, 2024.
