SCHEDULED SOCIAL FOR TONIGHT 4/21 HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Published: Fri, Apr 21, 2017, 02:53PM CDT

Parents,

There is a severe storm moving in our direction tonight. We have decided to cancel our social/dance for this evening to be on the safe side. We will have one more social/dance in May for our kids. I am trying to make sure and keep our kids safe and many of them walk or ride bikes to our socials. I sincerely do not want any of you driving during a strong storm. The hail and strong winds are supposed to be at their worst from 7-9:30 tonight for our area. I believe your kids should be safely with you during that threat.

Thank you for understanding,

Ms. Springer

Coppell Isd Board Of Trustees Candidate Forum Tonight @ 630pm @ CHS
Published: Thu, Apr 20, 2017, 03:18PM CDT

Coppell ISD has two seats on its board of trustees up for general election on May 6, 2017.

There are two places up for election, and two candidates for each seat.

Place 4: Thom Hulme (incumbent); Ron Hansen

Place 5: David Caviness, Vara Kuppam (no incumbents)

Where/when can I learn more about the candidates and their positions?

The PTO presidents for all CISD schools will host a candidate forum on April 20th, 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the Coppell High School lecture hall.

Key dates to know:

  • *Early voting runs from April 24, 2017- May 2, 2017
  • *General Election (last chance to vote): May 6, 2017

What are school board members responsible for?

Coppell school board members are responsible for determining school district priorities and policies, approving personnel decisions, and managing the district’s budget. Budget management includes reviewing district expenditures and managing for growth, sometimes resulting in requests to voters for bond issuance or changes in tax rates. Their decisions directly impact all the children served by the Coppell ISD, including yours!

I usually only vote in the ‘big’ elections. Why should I take time out to vote?

Local elections provide, by far, the most direct opportunity for people to make a change in their community. There are many challenges facing Texas public education at this time, from school voucher options to changes in school rating systems, not to mention the direct challenges Coppell ISD is facing as our enrollment numbers continue to outpace predicted rates. Your vote matters to determine how our schools are being managed.

PTO Needs You To Help Keep And Create A Great Learning Environment
Published: Mon, Apr 3, 2017, 05:44PM CDT

East PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is an organization that forms a partnership between parents, teachers and school administrators to make our school great!

Parent involvement at the middle school level is CRITICAL as we raise money to provide needed items for the classroom, facilitate communication between the school and parents and community, sponsor guest speakers and other enrichment activities for our students, coordinate teacher appreciation, and provide social events for students, parents and staff to connect.

We have begun recruiting for the 2017-2018 PTO board. Our goal is to have a diverse and representative group of parents working together to support the great work of our teachers and administrators. If you are interested in joining this critical team of parent volunteers please email Susie Evans
