Data shows that the pandemic has had a significant impact on student learning, both across the country and in Triumph Public High Schools (TPHS).

TPHS is launching a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to help determine how it should potentially spend additional federal dollars to address unfinished learning and COVID-19 recovery.

The American Rescue Plan signed into law in March by President Joe Biden included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for school districts across the country, which is the single largest investment in federal elementary and secondary education in the nation’s history. TPHS will be applying to receive some of that additional funding.

Soon you will see the TPHS 2021–2022 Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan (RIPICS), which will continue to be updated throughout the school year as needed based on updated local health authority guidance, Texas Education Agency (TEA) Public Health information and in coordination with the CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommendations.

Take this survey

All parents, district employees, students and community members are urged to complete a survey to help TPHS determine what to prioritize with the potential ESSER funds. Please note, all open enrollment charter schools and independent school districts are limited what they can use ESSER funds to support.

Each Triumph Public High Schools’ Charter District will also conduct Open Public Meetings to collect vital stakeholder feedback.
