A message from Dr. Cornelio Gonzalez,
Region One ESC Executive Director:
Region One ESC COVID-19 Action Plan
We are being faced with challenges in our school system like never before; but we should take on these matters as opportunities to demonstrate our spirit. Be assured that we will continue to work alongside our districts and charter schools to ensure the same level of quality support, dedication, and service that you have been accustomed to receiving from our staff.
In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the Texas Department of State Health Services and local health authorities, Region One ESC will be taking the following steps:
- All face to face professional development events, trainings, conferences and meetings scheduled between March 23 and April 17 are suspended. If necessary, these events will be postponed and scheduled later.
- Region One ESC offices in Edinburg, Brownsville and Laredo will be closed for direct face-to-face service until April 3. We will be glad to assist you by telephone or e-mail during regular work hours. We encourage you to use our website and use all electronic means available to reach us. Please check our website for contact information or call (956) 984-6000.
Keep in mind that the unity and success of our region is our strength; we will come through this. As always, Region One ESC remains committed to the educators, students, and families in the communities we serve.
This dedicated website will continue to be updated and will provide useful information during this time.
At your service,
Dr. Cornelio Gonzalez
Region One ESC Executive Director
