E.C.I.S.D. asked for an assessment from the Center for Reform of School Systems about 18 months ago.
The assessment led the district to put several changes into place.
At a school board meeting Monday, E.C.I.S.D officials celebrated the successes of those changes, as well as the $129,750,000 bond that Ector County voters passed for the district in the November elections.
"It's an exciting thing to see school districts come together and do that kind of work," Dr. Cathy Mincburg of the Center for Reform of School Systems told Big 2. "Because too many school districts as we know in this country are just kind of floundering around and we're not seeing that in Ector County."
E.C.I.S.D. is also developing a steady plan for growth, instead of trying a number of different things all at once.
