Strategic Planning Icon

The District underwent a Strategic Design process in 2017, which led to the adoption of our core values: Great Teaching, Relationships, Redefining Success and Engagement.  This process also included the update to the CISD Mission and Vision of “You Matter”.  Additionally, the district went through an extensive visioning process that included a Long-Range Facilities Planning Committee in 2019-2020, a Visioning Committee in 2021 and a Bond Steering Committee in 2022-2023. The Strategic Planning process will build on these previous committees’ work to create a roadmap that is reflective of the Coppell ISD community's educational priorities as we look towards the future. 

The Strategic Planning Committee, composed of CISD parents, students, teachers, staff members and community representatives, will work together to shape the future of the district developing a strategic plan called Coppell 2030. CISD is committed to keeping the community in the loop every step of the way with updates on this process throughout the fall and winter.  After the committee’s first retreat in October, Action Teams will be formed to craft action plans based on the committee's initial work. This collaborative effort will culminate in a robust, action-oriented Strategic Plan, to be formally shared with the CISD Board of Trustees in early 2024.

The timeline of the CISD Strategic Planning process is:

  • Aug. 21, 2023 - Kick-off Meeting and Pre-work with Superintendent’s Cabinet

  • Sept. 6, 2023 — Board Workshop

  • Oct. 19-20, 2023 — Strategic Planning Retreat

  • November 2, 2023 - Follow up meeting with Superintendent’s Cabinet 

  • Fall/Winter of 2023 — Action Teams Work

  • February 1, 2024 — Final Strategic Planning Retreat

  • February or March 2024 — Strategic Plan Presented to the Board of Trustees

Periodic updates will be shared with the board and community at monthly board meetings.

The Coppell 2030 Strategic Plan is based on the 7 Community-Based Accountability System (CBAS) pillars.

Community-Based Accountability System (CBAS) pillars

The CISD Board of Trustees gathered for a workshop on Sept. 6 to dive into the district's Strategic Planning process and timeline. During the workshop, Trustees participated in a Strategic Planning Kick-Off Training, guided by Sheri Sides and Dr. Ken Helvey of N2Learning.

One of the highlights of the training was a deep dive into the essential role that the Board plays in the Strategic Planning process, including reaffirming the district’s current core values, mission and vision, You Matter. CISD is a part of the Community-Based Accountability System and reports annually on various pillars from the CBAS system. The Board of Trustees agreed to continue using the seven CBAS pillars as the framework for the Coppell 2023 Strategic Plan.
