In April, 2011, the Coppell ISD Board of Trustees approved the use of Open Enrollment for the admission of elementary students who live within the City of Coppell, but outside the attendance boundaries of CISD (an area which includes, but is not limited to Coppell Greens and Riverchase). The decision was approved by the Board for a few elementary schools with declining student enrollments.
This change in the district's policy is intended to create greater efficiency of operations by allowing the predetermined campuses to maximize their enrollment capacity in buildings that are already being heated, cooled, and cleaned. The move could also save a few teaching positions and generate $300,000 - $500,000 in additional revenue for the district depending on where the legislature sets CISD’s target revenue and the number of students who apply.
The Coppell Independent School District has developed this booklet as a resource for parents who might be considering Open Enrollment as an option for their child. In doing so, we have tried to anticipate every possible question and scenario in an effort to assist you in your decision-making. This booklet includes policies and procedures, the application, a checklist, and some frequently asked questions…all important information to know prior to submitting your child’s application.
