El Paso ISD Officials: School Closures Vote to be Postponed

Thursday morning, the El Paso Independent School District Board President Trent Hatch announced the postponement of Thursday night’s discussion and vote on the proposed campus closures.

Via a news release, officials stated, “After extensive discussions with EPISD administration, Superintendent Juan Cabrera requested the postponement of the vote because it was determined that a near balanced budget could be presented for approval to trustees at tonight’s regular board meeting.”

President Hatch said the postponement will give the district more time to prepare for a potential closure of schools in the near future.

“I am grateful that administration, working with our teacher associations, identified cost-saving measures to get us closer to a balanced budget,” Hatch said. “Over the last few weeks, we have heard from the community regarding school closures and we want them to know that we take their input seriously,” he added.

“However, we are still committed to right-sizing the district because we want to invest in our students and teachers and secure the financial well-being of EPISD.”

Administration will continue drafting plans for the possible transitioning of students and staff upon approval of school closures by the board. EPISD will plan additional community meetings and informational sessions.
