District Goals
Annually the Board of Trustees review the Mission, Vision, and Belief system of the District. Goals are also created based on the needs of the district. Those goals are adopted by the board annually and reviewed annually.
The current goals for Caldwell ISD are:
1. Increase student success through improving STAAR testing results to meet or exceed the state standards across the district in all student groups by the end of 2016-2017 school year.
2. Maintain or exceed a district - wide attendance rate of 97% and a graduation rate of 100% in each graduation co-hort.
3 Increase Parent/Community Involvement by providing opportunities at least once a month that support the educational prowess of our district.
4. Provide a safe, positive learning and teaching environment for all students and staff with minimal incandescence of major behavioral concerns, bullying, and violent /criminal acts throughout the school year.
5. Recruit, hire, and retain 100% highly effective staff from year to year.
6. Incorporate technology to enhance classroom instruction, refine campus and district operations and strengthen communication between school and home.


Caldwell ISD is committed to work with all students and their parents so that every student may achieve excellence in education and become a productive member of society.



Our district and its schools will be known for the exceptional academic and extracurricular achievements of our students, the value and morals we bring to the community and its families, the excellence of our staff and leadership, and our partnership with the community.



We believe our students are more successful with the active support of their parents, CISD employees, and community members.  We believe high expectations of our students yield positive self-worth, responsible behavior, and superior performance in diverse academic and extra-curricular activities.  We believe all school environments must be safe, secure, and positive places to learn, grown and work.
