The Coppell Independent School District prides itself in partnering with all stakeholders. The district has several annual standing committees and also forms committees for district initiatives throughout the year.
District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC)
Under provisions of the Texas education code, every school district is required to develop a district plan to improve student performance. Coppell ISD utilizes a collaborative planning process including community and staff input to develop the district’s education plan. District and campus plans are developed annually to be mutually supportive of the state goals and objectives under Education Code, Chapter 4.
In Coppell ISD, the planning team is known as the District Educational Improvement Council (DEIC) and the plan, aligned with the district’s five-year Strategic Plan, is known as the District Improvement Plan (DIP). The Board of Trustees for the district oversees the meeting procedures of the District-level planning and decision-making committee and annually approves their plan recommendations.
This committee is in charge of recommendations such as curriculum, calendar, and district programs.
2018-2019 DEIC Committee Meetings: TBA
All meetings are held in the Boardroom in Admin Building from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.
Diversity Task Force
The Diversity Task Force is comprised of parents, CISD staff and members of the community. It was derived from the vision of the Pinnacle 2020 long-range planning team in an effort to help CISD better serve our diverse community and continue to keep the lines of communication open to all members of our community. It meets several times throughout the school year. Those interested in participating in this process should contact Regina Owens, Director of ESL, Billingual, and Global Connections, for more information.
iLead is a leadership training series for interested parents and community members looking to become informed leaders and advocates for our students. Participants will gain insight into the operations of the CISD, as well as learn about our curriculum framework and community engagement opportunities.
iLead II is a next-level leadership training series for graduates of iLead.

School Parent Compact
Coppell ISD is seeking parental input for the development of a school-parent compact (agreement)- a requirement for all campuses receiving Title 1 funds. The completed document will detail ways families and schools can help children reach high academic standards of excellence. The group will need to meet several times throughout the fall semester. Those interested in participating in this process should contact Kristen Streeter, Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services (firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information.
Dual Language Advisory Council
The Diversity Task Force is comprised of parents, CISD staff and members of the community. It was derived from the vision of the Pinnacle 2020 long-range planning team in an effort to help CISD better serve our diverse community and continue to keep the lines of communication open to all members of our community. It meets several times throughout the school year.
School Healthy Advisory Council (SHAC)
The CISD SHAC is a group of individuals representing segments of the community, appointed by the school district to provide advice to the district on coordinated school health programming and its impact on student health and learning. SHAC provides an efficient, effective structure for creating and implementing age-appropriate, sequential health education programs, and early intervention and prevention strategies that can easily be supported by local families and community stakeholders.
Every independent school system is required by law to have a School District Health Advisory Council; of which the majority of members must be parents who are not employed by the school district. Go to Title 2, Chapter 28, Section 28.004 of the Texas Education Code to read the specifics of this mandate.
Pinnacle 2020 Committee and Action Teams
Coppell ISD's five-year planning process began in November 2013. Following several community meetings, the Pinnacle 2020 Committee comprised of students, staff, and community members met and confirmed the Mission, defined a Call to Action, and set five goals. Specific Results were then written for each goal. In May 2014, action teams (comprised of parents, staff and community members beyond the members of the Pinnacle 2020 Committee) began forming to define the steps needed to accomplish each specific result. Additional action teams will continue to meet over the next five years.
