• The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) grant programs are grants that are authorized by federal legislation and are administered by the Texas Education Agency.  


    The purpose of ESSER in general is to award subgrants to local educational agencies (LEAs) such as Birdville ISD to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools. 


    TEA has provided the following side-by-side document to communicate requirements of each of the ESSER grants.
