(El Paso, TX) – JANUARY 2020 - January is the month when school systems nationwide celebrate the work our School Boards do to ensure quality in our schools. Education Service Center Region 19 is very fortunate and appreciative of our highly dedicated Board of Directors.


Some of the duties that locally elected board members are tasked with include ensuring that schools are available, qualified teachers are in place, buildings are safe, and resources are provided. In order to fill these needs in the community, board members consistently seek and create data that will help guide them to assist their educators and students. They also learn new and applicable laws, assure that needs are being met according to the respective demographics and areas, set thoughtful goals, and carefully manage their district’s financial resources. Our board members here at ESC Region 19 actively attend our various conferences, events, and meetings in order to better connect and unite with all our staff. 2019 was a successful year for our ESC 19 Board Members as they continued providing Education and Community led resources for our region.    


We continue to express our gratitude to our ESC Region 19 Board of Directors:
