The El Centro Elementary School District proudly serves the communities of El Centro and Imperial to provide educational programs to about 5,400 kindergarten through eighth grade students at our eleven schools. On November 8, 2016 our community supported Measure “L” and the issuance of $22.1 million in general obligation bonds; to replace temporary portables with permanent classrooms; improve student access to computers and modern technology; modernize outdated classrooms, restrooms and school facilities; and construct new school facilities to reduce student overcrowding.
The Governing Board of the El Centro Elementary School District has appointed an independent citizens’ oversight committee to oversee bond proceeds & expenditures, review audit reports, and ensure that spending is consistent with Measure “L” guidelines. Prop 39 requires that the Committee have at lease seven members, with one member representing five different categories; business organization, senior citizen's organization, parent/guardian of ECESD student, active member of a parent-teacher organization and parent/guardian of student of ECESD, active in a bona fide taxpayer's organization and citizen's at large.
