Established in 1947, Community Independent School District, CISD, has been serving the students and families in southeast Collin County for almost 70 years. CISD attendance boundaries spread over 89 square miles and encompass the towns of Copeville, Josephine, Lavon and Nevada. CISD is home to over 2,100 students attending our four campuses: NeSmith Elementary (Pre-K - 5th grade), McClendon Elementary (Pre-K - 5th grade and ESL program), Edge Middle School (6th - 8th grade), and Community High School (9th - 12th grade).
CISD offers a safe and caring learning environment with low student to teacher ratios. Our teachers average over a decade of experience and are dedicated to providing the individual attention each student needs, while cultivating a passion for learning in every child. Our commitment to develop a desire for excellence in every student is evident in our 100% graduation rate.
CISD provides students with all the necessary tools to engage in the curriculum and expand the learning environment. The District's 1:1 student device initiative starts with iPad minis in 3rd - 7th grade. Beginning in 8th grade, students are provided with Chromebooks until graduation.
