Esser III Grant Funding
Each district or charter school that receives Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) funds must develop and make publicly available, a plan for the use of ESSER III funds as well as a plan for the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services. The ARP ESSER III Use of Funds Plan describes how the district or charter school will use the funds to address the academic impact of lost instructional time through the implementation of evidence-based interventions to respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID–19 pandemic.
The Return to School Plan 2021-2022 must describe how the district or charter will implement prevention and mitigation strategies that are, to the greatest extent practicable, consistent with the most recent CDC guidance on reopening schools, in order to continuously and safely open and operate schools for in-person learning. Additionally, the 2021-2022 Translation Procedure must ensure parents who speak languages other than English are provided the plans in an understandable and uniform format and to the extent practicable, written in a language that parents can understand.

Guidelines for the Care of Students with Food Allergies
In response to the increase in students with diagnosed food allergies at risk for anaphylaxis, Senate Bill 27 (82nd Legislative Session, 2011) amended Chapter 38 of the Texas Education Code (TEC) by adding §38.0151. The statute requires the board of trustees of each school district and the governing body, or appropriate officers of open-enrollment charter schools, to adopt and administer a policy for the care of students with diagnosed food allergies at risk for anaphylaxis. The policy must be based on guidelines developed by the state Commissioner of Health in consultation with the Food Allergy Ad Hoc Committee. In addition, a school district or open-enrollment charter school should review and revise its policy as necessary to ensure it is consistent with the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) guidelines. The law further states that each school year, the board of trustees of each school district and the governing body of each open-enrollment charter school must post a summary of the guidelines on the district's or school's Internet website, including instructions on obtaining access to the complete guidelines document.
The guidelines document includes information about how to:
- Discuss federal and state legislation
- Define and discuss a food allergy and anaphylaxis
- Discuss the signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction
- Discuss how to treat food allergies and anaphylaxis, and how to manage food allergies in the school setting
- Identify students with food allergies at risk for anaphylaxis
- Develop, implement, communicate, and monitor emergency care plans, 504 plans, or individualized health care plans
- Reduce exposure risk through environmental controls
- Provide training for school staff on food allergies, anaphylaxis, and emergency response
- Review policy and procedures after an anaphylactic reaction
The Guidelines for the Care of Students with Food Allergies document is intended to serve as a reference and illustrative guide for local school boards or charter school leadership. It can be used to help create and implement school district policies and administrative regulations. This document should not serve as treatment guidelines for healthcare practitioners. Any portion of this document may be reproduced for educational purposes or policy development.

Student Handbook Statement
TEA is required to provide school districts and charter schools a written statement of the options and requirements for providing assistance to students who have learning difficulties or who need, or may need, special education services (Texas Education Code §26.0081).
The statement must explain that a parent may request an evaluation for special education or Section 504 services at any time. Parents must receive the statement in a written format every year. A school may include the statement in the student handbook, or a school may disseminate the statement through other means such as a letter or newsletter to each parent and ensure that each parent receives a copy.
