The El Paso Independent School District has been losing hundreds of students each year recently.
Their proposed budget for next year shows a drop in average daily attendance from 50,393 students per day in 2019-20 to 48,666 students in attendance per day in 2020-21.
That is a drop of 1,721 students in attendance each day.
Yet we don’t see the district’s budget getting smaller.
We deserve better
