ECISD Bond Committee Campus Tour

Bond Committee 2023

  • On January 26, 2023, a bond committee of more than 100 people began a comprehensive look at all of ECISD’s facility and program needs, with the ultimate charge to evaluate those needs, establish priorities for future renovation/construction, and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees to consider.

    This bond committee is a strong, diverse group of people. To ensure the committee has representation from all areas of Odessa and Ector County, the committee is made up of 1 parent (non-employee) from each school; 1 staff member from each school; 21 community members (3 appointed by each of the 7 Trustees); 10 students; and 11 central administration representatives.

    The committee is scheduled to meet through the end of the school year in May, and present its recommendations the school board in June. The schedule of meetings is listed on our calendar here. All meetings will take place at G.H.W.B. New Tech Odessa. The earliest date Trustees could call for a bond election is November 2023.   

    This webpage will serve as a hub of information regarding the committee’s discussions. After each meeting the reports and information reviewed will be posted here. A Questions & Answers document will also be included on this page, as will related media coverage.

    The last successful bond election came in 2012 when voters approved the construction of three new elementary schools (Buice, Downing and West), and the expansion of Odessa High School and Permian High School to accommodate freshmen on campus. You will find a recent history of ECISD bond and tax elections on this page.
