El Paso Independent School District

El Paso Independent School District The El Paso Independent School District is the largest school districts serving El Paso, Texas . Originally organized in 1883, it is currently the largest district in the Texas Education Agency's Educational Service Center Region 19, as well as the largest district within the city of El Paso and El Paso County.

The EPISD also provides public education to the children of U.S. Army soldiers stationed at Fort Bliss. The district headquarters are located in El Paso.In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.School Board (Board of Trustees)The EPISD is managed by a school board composed of seven publicly elected school board trustees and a single superintendent. Each trustee represents one of the seven districts in the EPISD. Vernon Butler is interim superintendent of EPISD.In December 2012 the commission of the Texas Education Agency, Michael Williams, appointed a five-person board of managers and a conservator to oversee the district instead of the Board of Trustees, because the board failed to stop the cheating scandal conducted by previous superintendent Lorenzo Garcia and failed to fire his co-conspirators after he was arrested by the FBI in August 2011. The board of managers includes Ed Archuleta, Carmen Arrieta-Candelaria, Judy Castleberry, Blanca Enriquez, and Dee Margo. Castleberry was also appointed as conservator. The board of managers can remain in power up to two years, although there are elections for trustees scheduled for 2013. The trustees are appealing this to the Department of Justice.
