ECISD approves Texas Tech charter school agreement

ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - The Ector County ISD Board of Trustees has approved the initial agreement with Texas Tech for a charter school.

A special meeting was held on Thursday evening to consider an agreement with Texas Tech College of Education for an in-district charter school at Ector Middle School.

Trustees voted 6-0 to approve a Memorandum of Understanding with Texas Tech.

The Memorandum of Understanding is a general agreement to pursue the partnership and must still be signed by Texas Tech University and submitted to the Texas Education Agency before the April 30 deadline.

Once the agreement is submitted to Texas Education Agency, ECISD and Texas Tech will continue working out a more detailed contact for the charter school, which will open in August.
