Welcome to Central Independent School District. This is my eleventh year serving as superintendent of the District. We have three campuses with an enrollment of 1,525 students and 225 staff members. We have a graduation rate of 96.8% and a post-secondary rate of 98.9%.
The District has experienced strong academic growth over the last several years moving from an “Acceptable” to a “Recognized” district. Central Elementary earned the “Exemplary” rating for three consecutive years during that time. Under the new accountability system, Central ISD has received the “Met Standard” rating since 2013. Conservative financial leadership has been reflected in the management practices of the District. We have earned the highest financial rating of “Superior Achievement” on the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas for many years. The District has made a considerable investment in facilities by passing a $12.5 million dollar bond issue building a new elementary campus, as well as renovating the secondary campuses.
Our purpose is to prepare students to graduate and become productive citizens. Central ISD partners with Angelina College and Stephen F. Austin State University to prepare our students for college and the workforce. The District pays tuition for all students taking dual credit courses at Angelina College. Also, students attending Central High School are provided with Google Chromebooks giving them access to the latest technology tools. We believe in developing a college going culture and workforce readiness skills that prepare students for the future job market.
Finally, what really sets our schools apart is our desire to make sure every child knows they are safe, valued and cared for in every classroom. Our pledge is to give our best effort to make Central ISD is a great place for kids to learn and grow.
