Ector County ISD Prop A passes

ODESSA -- Ector County ISD Prop A passed with over 60 percent voting "for" a property tax raise.

The tax ratification election adds $18 million per year to the school district's budget.

A large sum of this additional budget is planned to go toward raises for staff.

ECISD representatives said it's all in an effort to keep high quality teachers in the district.

The other funding priorities include roof and bus replacements.
