Prior to the Coppell ISD Board of Trustees naming him CISD Superintendent in July 2017, Dr. Brad Hunt served the district for almost 30 years as a teacher at Coppell High School, assistant principal of Coppell Middle School West, Director of Human Resources, principal of Coppell High School and as Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services.

“It is my privilege to serve you, your child and CISD.”


Under Dr. Hunt’s leadership, in the fall of 2017 CISD embarked on a new Strategic Design effort to collaboratively create its next set of priorities as the district nears the end of its previous strategic plan, Pinnacle 2020. Both current and former students, parents, as well as teachers, staff, CISD Trustees and members of the community worked together throughout the entire process in developing CISD’s core Values, which are centered around the themes of engagement, great teaching, redefining success and relationships.

“This important Strategic Design work is helping us collaboratively create CISD's next set of priorities and giving the district a renewed vision for the upcoming years.”


The theme for the district is #CISDOurStory. Many people — most importantly families, educators and the community — play an integral role in CISD’s students’ stories by providing support along their journey from pre-kindergarten to graduation and beyond.  

“My focus is on celebration, communication, collaboration and commitment in working to ensure each child’s story is known, encouraged and supported.”
