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.
All meetings are held in the Boardroom in Admin Building from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.
The CISD Bond Committee is a group of parents, students, staff and community members that will collaboratively develop a long-range plan for district facilities, technology and other eligible bond items. The committee will serve in an advisory role to assist district staff and the Board of Trustees to assess and prioritize district needs. The committee will develop a comprehensive master plan recommendation based upon the district’s mission and core values to be presented to the Board of Trustees for a potential May 2023 bond program.

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.

CBAS Advisory Council
Coppell ISD has a Community-Based Accountability System (CBAS) Advisory Council that works with the district to provide feedback regarding accountability in Coppell ISD. The CBAS Advisory Council is made up of parents, students, community and staff members.
Coppell ISD believes in a Community Accountability Based System (CBAS) to measure growth and identify opportunities for improvement. CBAS matters, because it means our community, which includes our staff, our students and their families, our businesses, and our community members share in the development and analysis of the system that holds the district accountable. The CBAS system is from our community and for our community.
CBAS allows CISD to share, through a holistic view, with all of our stakeholders that CISD is producing future-ready learners. In Texas, our schools and our students are rated based on one test score and one day through the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). We believe STAAR tests do not give a complete picture of Coppell ISD, our students, our schools or any schools in Texas for that matter.
District Safety & Security Design Committee
It is the purpose of the Coppell ISD Safety and Security Committee to collectively engage staff, students, and community members in developing a safe working and learning environment, so that great teaching and authentic relationships can occur.
