ESC Region 12 in Waco, Texas has partnered with rural Regugio ISD, Texas to support their rebuilding efforts. Can you help?
The Rebuilding of Schools and Communities Continues
Many of our members reached out right after Hurricane Harvey to offer support to the affected ESAs and schools in Texas. School districts continue to need assistance as they rebuild their schools.
ESC Region 12 from Waco, Texas has partnered with a small, rural school district, Refugio ISD, to support their rebuilding efforts.
Refugio ISD has a student enrollment of 725 and is located in a rural town of 2,890 residents on Texas’ coastal bend. More than 75% of the town was damaged, including every building in the district. 78% of the students qualify for free/reduced lunch and after Hurricane Harvey 95.2% of the students were considered homeless.
Today, ESC Region 12 and the school district are focused on meeting the basic needs of their student population.
You can help their efforts by providing funds to support classroom library sets for elementary teachers, library books for grades 7 – 12, provide tablets to replace technology, replace band instruments, and the list goes on.
