District of Innovation
The mission of the El Campo Independent School District is to maximize opportunities for all ECISD students by providing the educational opportunity and motivation to learn the skills necessary for academic and vocational excellence.
House Bill 1842, Section 4 passed in the 84th Texas Legislative Session, provides an opportunity for Texas public school districts to be designated as Districts of Innovation, thereby allowing them the flexibility to be exempt from or modify state requirements at the local level to better meet the needs of the students and personalize learning.
Districts of Innovation provide opportunities for:
Greater local control;
Increased flexibility governing education programming; and
Empowerment to innovate and think differently.
Districts are not exempt from statues related to curriculum, graduation requirements, nor academic and financial accountability.
El Campo ISD has chosen to renew it's District of Innovation Plan for the 2023-2027 school years. Below is the approved plan for viewing.
