The sum will be split and distributed proportionally between Hays CISD, San Marcos CISD, Dripping Springs ISD and Wimberley ISD.
"We went back and took enrollments from our four public school districts before COVID-19 and just used that as a percentage, and that's how we'll divide the money," Precinct 2 Commissioner Mark Jones said during an Oct. 27 Commissioners Court meeting.
According to county records, HCISD had 53% of the county's 37,279 enrolled students as of the 2019-20 school year and will thus receive the largest portion of money: $266,356.
SMCISD will receive $108,452 for its 22% of the county's students; DSISD will receive $91,794 for its 18% of the county's students; and WISD will receive $33,397 for its 7% of the county's students.
These districts will be required to create a spending plan that outlines how funds will assist daily operations that protect students and district personnel from the coronavirus pandemic, according to the release.
"The ISDs will each give us their roadmap of how they plan on using the money, and then we'll make sure that it's actually executed effectively," County Judge Ruben Becerra said during the Oct. 27 meeting.
Jones also told the court that HCISD could purchase 800 devices it needs with the funding it receives.
"I know our districts are anxious to get this," Jones said.
