Advocate for ECISD
We encourage our parents and community members to stay informed and get involved in our legislative process. Everyone Counts in El Campo ISD so use your voice to make a difference in the lives of our students.
How to Stay Informed of the Legislative Process
When the legislature is in session, the Texas Legislature Online (TLO) home page will include the time that the House and Senate are scheduled to convene each day. Methods to view introduced legislation include:
Legislative Reports - View a list of bills that have been filed in the House or Senate.
- Bill Status - View the current status and legislative history for a bill.
- Text Search - Find bills with specific content.
- Subject Search - Find bills on a specific subject using the bill search or the subject index.
You can create a personal bill list and receive e-mail notification as the status changes on bills you chose to watch at http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/MnuMyTLO.aspx
Most committee meetings are available for viewing over the Internet on the House and Senate websites.

Legislative Issues Impacting ECISD:
Funding for Mid-size Districts (see attachments below)
Attached below is testimony by Dr. Jodi Duron, Superintendent of Elgin and President-Elect of TAMS, and Dr. Stephen Patterson, Superintendent of Orangefield, given on behalf of TAMS before the Joint House Public Education and Appropriations Committee hearings last week. Their testimony lays out the problems mid-size schools face related to diseconomy of scale and the necessity of protecting the mid-size formula in any new school finance proposal.
