District Wide Announcement: New CHISD Wireless Network Policy
House Bill (HB) 3261 requires Texas schools to transition to online state summative assessments in the near future. With this new requirement, the district must make an effort to manage the bandwidth levels on the district’s network. CHISD will be implementing a new Wireless Network Policy effective January 1, 2022. This new policy will limit and restrict all students' cell phones from connecting to our wireless network. This does not restrict students from using their own personal data plans as needed. We have recently increased the number of Chromebooks available to students on all three campuses in order for them to complete their course work while on campus. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we implement the new wireless policy.
Seamless Summer Option - Free Meals in School Year 2021-2022
CHISD would like to announce for the 2021 – 2022 school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance this year that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021 – 2022 school year. Please note that while this free breakfast and lunch program is available to us for 2021 – 2022, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022 – 2023 school year. During the first week of school, each student will receive a packet of paperwork that needs to be completed. While no application or eligibility determination process will be required for your student to receive free meals this school year, we are asking ALL families to complete the included ‘Socioeconomic Information Form’. This form will not be used against you in any way, as it is not used for any sort of individual qualification purposes. It is confidential and will only be used in summary for TEA to examine our CHISD school population as a whole. Our student population determines the amount of funding available to our school district and factors into our accountability ratings, so we need these forms completed to make sure our school continues to benefit from these special programs. Below is a letter explaining the ‘Seamless Summer Option’ in English & Spanish. There is a also a copy of the ‘Socioeconomic Information Form’ so that you can see what to look for.

ESSER III Use of Funds Input Survey
The American Rescue Plan Act was signed into law, dedicating funds for K-12 schools through Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) III funds. As a result, CHISD will be applying for the one-time, ARP (American Rescue Plan) ESSER III funding. The purpose of this funding is to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. In order to determine the best uses of these funds, we are consulting with our stakeholders (students, families, administration, teachers, staff, community members and additional stakeholders with specific interests of traditionally underserved student populations). Please complete the survey below and help us in our planning process.
We truly appreciate your time and assistance! Have a great Blue Devil day! Click HERE to access the survey.
