EPISD is an open enrollment school district that welcomes students tuition-free throughout El Paso county. Students who live inside the district's boundary zones may choose to attend the EPISD school that best suits their academic needs. Out-of-district and intra-district transfers must be approved by the accepting campus principal.
EPISD is the first district in El Paso county officially designated as a Texas District of Innovation. The designation gives EPISD the same flexibilities as charter schools in crafting curricula, school programming and calendars.
