Eanes ISD has received financial assistance to accommodate the economic fallout associated with the coronavirus, according to Superintendent Tom Leonard’s report during a May 26 board meeting.

The district has been granted a total of $115,000 through the coronavirus relief bill and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund.



EISD will be applying for an additional grant in June, according to Leonard, who said if approved the funds would be used for direct costs incurred for the planning and mitigation of the virus. The specific grant was not discussed during the board meeting.

“Anytime we see any additional funding that is available that we can apply for, I can assure you we’re doing that. ” Leonard said.
