North Texas Educators Call on State Leaders to Release Federal Stimulus Funds for Public Schools
Some North Texas educators, parents and students are calling on state elected officials to distribute federal stimulus money to K-12 public schools to ensure they can recover from the pandemic.
In a news conference April 27 in Grapevine, educators, parents, business owners and students spoke in favor of continuous support of House Bill 3, which was passed in 2019 and reformed school finance. They also spoke in support of continuing district funding based on historical enrollment data rather than current numbers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Those in attendance also wanted to ensure federal stimulus funds allocated for Texas public schools get distributed.
