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.
