While Ector County ISD may not be at the level it would like, Superintendent Scott Muri says good things are happening in the district.
In his State of the District address earlier in March, Muri said kindergarten readiness has increased by 13 percentage points, SAT scores were above the state level and there was a 7 percent increase this year over last in college, career and military readiness. This is a factor in state accountability standards.
He noted that the 84.7 percent graduation rate is the highest in 20 years.
Opportunity Culture has been implemented at 17 campuses. Three more will be implemented next year.
According to its website, Opportunity Culture extends the “reach of excellent teachers and their teams to more students, for more pay, within budget. Teachers gain time to plan and collaborate, everyone gets more support, and students get high-standards, personalized instruction.”
