In November 2017, Coppell ISD kicked off a Strategic Design effort as the previous long-range planning effort was nearing its completion. For that reason and new district leadership, the time was right to design of the next chapter of the CISD Story.
The first phase of the process, Discovery & Definition, resulted in the development of new district Values derived through feedback sought from stakeholders which included teachers, current and former parents, current and former students, administrators, and local community members. These Values represent not only what makes CISD unique and special, but also areas of improvement centering on the themes of engagement, great teaching, redefining success and relationships. The Board of Trustees overwhelmingly approved these Values at the June 2018 Board Meeting.
The second phase of the Strategic Design effort included driving awareness of and building advocacy for the district Values among each stakeholder group. In parallel, the district implemented the Design and Deliver steps in the process. This focus generated innovative solutions to the top priority strategies, which were also defined in the first phase of the effort. The district has developed innovative strategies around redefining success and collective engagement. This year, the district is engaging stakeholders to cultivate innovation around authentic relationships.
