Local School Districts Discuss What To Do With Federal Funding

Bexar County school districts are planning how to spend millions of federal dollars they'll soon receive. State leaders recently announced that they're releasing more than $11 billion in federal pandemic relief funds to the state's public schools. Different districts have been allocated different amounts, which are to be spent over about a three-year period. District officials are listing spending priorities, such as addressing students' mental health, dealing with student learning loss, and adding new technology. Each district needs to come up with a comprehensive spending plan and apply by the July deadline.
