Partnership will help grow inspiring leaders

East Central ISD is proud to be one of six districts chosen for The Holdsworth Center Partnership, a five-year journey that will help us grow more strong, inspiring leaders so that teachers thrive and students get what they need to succeed.
All programming and support – valued at $6 million over five years – is covered at no cost through the generosity of Holdsworth founder & H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt, along with other philanthropic supporters.
ECISD was chosen from a pool of 43 applicants after a detailed process that included a written application & a series of remote interviews with central office leaders, board members and principals. Holdsworth team members were looking for districts who were ready, willing and able to drive major changes that would result in excellent and equitable outcomes for all students.
“Focused and constantly learning, the leaders in ECISD are always seeking new ideas and striving to get better in their pursuit of equitable and excellent outcomes for students,” said Pauline Dow, Holdsworth’s vice president. “This is a team who’s eager to roll up their sleeves to accelerate the work of building a bench of strong, ready leaders. We are excited for the opportunity to walk alongside them.”
