East Chambers ISD update - Thursday, 8/27/20

East Chambers ISD will remain on the virtual platform through Friday, August 28, 2020.  In person instruction will resume, Monday, August 31, 2020 with the regular schedule.  

Note from the Superintendent - Tuesday, 08/25/2020


As many of you are evacuating, as well as much of our staff, there is no requirement to attempt to log in live for instruction until the storm threat passes. Now is the time to focus on your family's safety. We will have plenty of time after the storm to figure out next steps on the virtual platform. Assignments that were sent home yesterday or that are subsequently uploaded may be worked on by students at any time each day as they are able and have access. The idea of going totally virtual is meant to provide services to your children in the event that we have an extended period of time before we are able to return to face to face instruction. Stay safe.

Scott Campbell, Superintendent ECISD

Information for parents for November 8, 2016

There has been some discussion about an unauthorized visitor at the Junior High Campus yesterday at the end of the day.  We did have a person come onto the campus without a pass who was briefly kneeling at one of our flagpoles; however, there was no interaction with any of our students, and he left after a few minutes.  We do not have any reason to believe that there was any threat.

​We are using the episode to practice our safety and security measures today.  There should be no alarm as we drill during the day today.  ​These drills and measures give us the practice we need to ensure everyone is safe in the event of a real threat.

​Thank you for your concern.  As always, your child's safety is of the utmost importance to ECISD.

Scott Campbell,

Superintendent ECISD

Student Health Care Provisions

As we resume normal operations at ECISD, we understand there may be residual effects from the Flood of '17 on some of our students that will need to be addressed.  Their mental and physical health are important to their education.  As part of our partnership with the Winnie Stowell Hospital District, ECISD will be utilizing funds already being provided by the WSHD to ramp up help for any of our students impacted by this disaster who need assistance.  Please let us know of any specific concerns you have with any trauma regarding your child, and we will work to resolve it.  You may contact Katie Sparks or Cindy Bull directly or just mention your concerns to any teacher, and he/she will get them the information.  We will be able to provide assistance ranging from basic first aid and examinations to counseling and are in a position to bring in additional staff and resources as needed during the recovery period.  I want to again thank the WSHD Board for continuing to provide funding to meet the health care needs for ECISD students in need of assistance.  It allows us to focus more of our own resources in the classroom.

Important Announcement from East Chambers iSD

As our community continues to deal with the storm, ECISD has determined that it is in the best interest of the people to delay the first day of school until Tuesday, September 5th. This week is a time for neighbors helping neighbors, assessing damage, and cleaning up.  There is a larger lesson for our students to learn this week than they might experience in the classroom.  Have empathy for one another, and step up to lend a helping hand.  Stay safe.


Como nuestra comunidad continúa lidiando con la tormenta, ECISD ha determinado que es en el mejor interés de la gente a retrasar el primer día de escuela hasta el martes, 5 de septiembre. Esta semana es un tiempo para los vecinos ayudar a los vecinos, evaluar el daño, y la limpieza. Hay una lección más grande para nuestros estudiantes para aprender esta semana de lo que podrían experimentar en el aula. Tener empatía por el otro, y dar un paso para ayudar. Mantenerse a salvo.

(click above for complete print)



As your Superintendent, I would like to introduce an initiative involving third through eighth grades at EC that we ask you to consider.  We are making a concerted effort at EC to get students to read more on their own – just for the pleasure and joy of reading.  A side effect of reading more is that students become more successful in all of their academic pursuits.  This initiative is a way for the good citizens of our community to directly impact the education of our children.  We are providing a list of books that are considered standards for children’s literature or that have been approved by at least one family-centered organization, according to the Texas Education Agency which provides the list to parents on their child’s STAAR Student Report.  I am providing the list here for you.

Elementary Student donates Tablet

A second grade student, Danica Burrell, participated in a fundraiser Hoops for Hearts  several months ago. She raised enough money to win a free tablet. She decided that since she already had one she would donate the tablet to a student at EC Elementary. Once the tablet was received Danica was able to draw a name of an EC student to be the winner. She drew a 4th grade student, Josue Garcia! Congrats on the tablet Josue and what an amazing gift Danica!
