We're Committed to our Families
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, San Antonio ISD (SAISD) pivoted to a virtual learning model, accelerating a 3-year 1:1 technology plan to a matter of weeks. We made a pledge to ensure every student had a device and access to Wi-Fi connectivity so that all our students could connect with their teachers and engage in meaningful remote learning. We also developed a comprehensive plan to mitigate learning loss, and focused on prioritizing the socio-emotional health of all our families.
Now, SAISD has successfully transitioned back to in-person learning. Continuously, we work toward achieving our goal of ensuring every student receives a rigorous and enriching educational experience that prepares them for success in college, career, and life. While the past has provided challenges, we remain focused on pursuing personalized and equitable learning models that provide access to the tools and resources needed for all methods of learning.
Looking forward, we know that we will make strides in improving the lives of our students, staff and community!
The dollars allocated through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund are critical to getting our teachers and students back on track and ready for what lies ahead.
SAISD was allocated approximately $78.3M from ESSER II and III funds for year 1; $78.3M for year 2; $60M for year 3, and $60M for year 4, for a total of $276.6 million.
We have a comprehensive working plan to holistically tackle our needs. Our plan is informed by feedback, research and a commitment to ensuring every student in SAISD is prepared for success.
