Copperas Cove Independent School District The Copperas Cove Independent School District serves the educational needs of more than 8,300 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12th, with a staff of more than 1,300 teachers, adminis-trators, and support personnel. There are seven elementary schools, two junior high schools and two high schools, one being an alternative school of choice. Our school system enjoys a solid reputa-tion as one of the finest in Central Texas. We offer objective-based curriculum to all students, regardless of special need or condition. In the 2012-2013 school year, nearly 500 CCISD students graduated high school, receiving more than $1.4 million in scholarships, for both academic and athletic achievements. Due to our close proximity to Fort Hood, military students make up about 40% of our student population. We are proud to serve our military members and their fami-lies by offering them additional opportunities including, free tuition for out-of-district students, and pre-kindergarten for students starting at three years of age. Under the new state accountability system, districts and campuses receive one of two ratings, “met standard,” or “improvement required,” to label districts’ performance. Copperas Cove ISD received a district-wide rating of “met standard,” with all campuses meeting standards and several schools also earning academic distinction designa-tions. This goes to show that our students and staff continue to achieve at the highest levels, even in a time of changing standards. The CCISD Board of Trustees serves as the governing board for the district. In 2011, the CCISD Board was named the Region 12 ESC School Board of the Year. This honor is another strong example of the quality leadership guiding the Copperas Cove Independent School District. CCISD also works to provide effective systems of communication with district stakeholders. In 2009, we joined Facebook and Twitter. These accounts and our district website, www.ccisd.com, are updated daily with district information and the accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff. As we begin another school year, we are excited to welcome all students and their families to our dis-trict. We take great pride in the level of education we are able to provide our students here in Copperas Cove ISD and as always we remain A+ Schools in a #1 Community!
