• Slant 45 Traveling Art Exhibit in CISD

    A portion of the SLANT 45: Community Heroes Exhibition currently on display at the State Capitol building in Austin, TX., is on loan to the Coppell ISD. Service Learning Adventures in North Texas (SLANT) has allowed the school district to host a piece of Super Bowl history by exhibiting panels with artworks in them, including designs by CISD students.

    The SLANT 45 project, named after an actual football play used by Daryl Johnston and Emmitt Smith for the Dallas Cowboys, was one of the largest community service learning projects in U.S. history. Some 44,140 students logged a combined total of 445,814 hours of service across North Texas. Thirty-three school districts and 15 private schools helped recruit groups of students and volunteers in communities across North Texas.

    Open for public viewing at the Vonita White Administration Building located at 200 So. Denton Tap Road in Coppell, the 4ft. x 8ft. panels will remain on display during regular business hours until May 16. Two of the four panels are located in the Main Lobby area and the remaining two panels are in the foyer of the Board Room.
