Ector County ISD Has a Backup Plan if November School Bond Doesn't Pass

ODESSA - Ector County schools are counting on the upcoming bond election to ease overcrowding.

But if the bond fails, they still have a backup plan.

According to the District, for the last two years they have been setting aside unused general funds.

In fact, more than $9 million has been placed in an account called New Elementary Project Fund.

But again, this is just a backup plan.

That $9 million won't come near covering everything that needs to be done.

If the bond goes through, the district is hoping to build three new elementary schools, move into a middle school system and make room at the high schools for freshman students.
