This To the Administrator Addressed letter announces the launch of the 2022-2023 COVID-19 Testing Program

Beginning Thursday, July 21, 2022, and continuing through the end of SY 22-23, the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and TEA will be extending the school-based COVID-19 testing activities through the work of vendors funded by an $800 million federal grant. Due to the many changes to this year’s program, school systems must go through the following steps before applying for the testing program.  

School Health Support Grant 

The 2021-2022 COVID-19 School Health Support Grant end date has been extended. The new grant end date is March 31, 2023. Current grantees have been sent an amended notice of grant award (NOGA) reflecting this no-cost extension.
