Ector County ISD Working to Cut Down on Relationships Between Students, Teachers

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

The Ector County Independent School District is trying to cut down on inappropriate relationships between students and teachers.

They are introducing a new provision to their employee handbook which now bans students and teachers from texting before 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

There are some exceptions for teachers who sponsor extracurriculars or after school programs.

The ethical code has been in place for a few years but was only recently formalized in the employee handbook.

All communications between student and teacher will still be analyzed on a case by case basis.

The new provisions to the handbook give clear expectations for the teachers.

Since 2013, there have been at least five improper relationships between students and teachers at the E.C.I.S.D. alone.
