• Special Olympics at East Central ISD

    ECISD has enjoyed a remarkable partnership with Special Olympics of Texas. 

    Together, we work to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for hundreds of children with intellectual disabilities.

    We believe this is essential in helping special needs athletes develop physical fitness, experience the joy of competition and strive to be their best.
