Excellence Through Integrity and Innovation
Download Fact Sheet
It is with great pride that I speak on behalf of the more than 6,000 students and nearly 900 employees that make up our wonderful school district. Canutillo is a community filled with history and pride, and as CISD grows we look forward to spreading our traditions to new members of our family.
Canutillo ISD’s humble beginnings and storied growth is proof positive that with perseverance and determination, our students,educators and leaders can accomplish goals that often seem unreachable.
We are certainly proud of the work the teachers, school leaders and students from our past have done, and we celebrate their victories as our own. It is now time, however, to place a strong emphasis on the future,and find a way to grow in a way that serves the new population moving into our district while still improving the level of service we have provided our traditional Canutillo communities over the last five decades.
I am confident that we will be able to reach our goal of becoming a premier school district in the state of Texas with top-notch graduates who are able to pursue their post-graduation dreams. I am assured by the drive and dedication of our faculty and staff, who have set up a strong set of values based on student achievement, ethics and high expectations. I am also assured by our students who have made a pledge to become productive citizens of our global community by bridging academics with respect for others.
And I am assured by our parents and community members who have never been hesitant in their support of the school district over the years. Please let us know how we may be of service to you and your family.
