Tornillo ISD

Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Public school enrollment around the nation, state, and region has been steadily decreasing for the past 5 years, as it is the case for Tornillo ISD. Decreased enrollment poses a variety of challenges for school operations with funding being at the top of the list. Enrollment projections for the 23-24 academic year is 780 students, a significant decline from 1025 students in 2018-2019. Basically what this means is that we have to do more with less resources. In an effort to continue to have a balanced budget and protect the endless opportunities being offered to students from PK-High School while staying competitive with regional salaries for staff, we have to make some grade level configurations and campus relocation for the 23-24 academic school year. In preparation for $1 million budget reductions due to declining enrollment and low student daily attendance, the Tornillo Independent School District will need to make the following changes:

  • 6th Grade will be served at Tornillo Intermediate School
  • 7th-8th Grade will be served at Tornillo High School
  • Headstart-2nd Grade will relocate to the Jr High Campus

There will be several parent/guardian meetings (Locations, Dates, & Times Listed Below) beginning this week at each of the campuses for you all to attend as this will be a topic that will be presented. We look forward to your attendance. Should you not be able to attend, here is the link to my recorded announcement and you can always contact us via email or by phone. With your help, we look forward to the great opportunities this change will yield for all our students, staff, and learning community.

Thank you, rvegab
