DISTRICT OF INNOVATION FOR CFBISD

CFBISD is considering a District of Innovation designation. Becoming a District of Innovation would allow our district flexibility on a number of issues…including flexibility in academic calendars.

On December 7, 2017 the CFB ISD School Board of Trustees voted to pursue designation as District of Innovation and appointed a committee to work on this.

We invite you to attend the CFB ISD School board meetings to learn more about this.

PARENT RESOURCES: Pass onto parents at your school

If your PTA sends out flyers or newsletter/e-newsletter to your parents, remember the National PTA has a lot of good resources on their website. They have a whole section on Family Resources with parent guides, special education resources, college and career readiness and more.
