Our Human Resources Department is responsible for maintaining a well-staffed school district with employees who are able to perform their duties effectively for the best interests of the tax payers, of course, and most importantly for the students.
The most important responsibility of CHISD is to promote the highest level of student learning. Successful learning is shaped by offering our children “highly qualified”, diverse staff of teachers who have a passion for teaching. Our goal is to attract, train, and retain teachers who have what it takes to contribute positively to our students, our schools, and our community.
CHISD offers the advantages of a small school with a caring and nurturing staff concerned about the individual needs of each student. CHISD offers our students many academic and extra-curricular opportunities. CHISD cultivates a spirit of cooperation.
Considered by many to be a small district, CHISD values the involvement of the community, the businesses, and the parents. Our school district considers parent involvement essential to the success of our students. Our parents are active in volunteering, serving on committees, and participating in our e-mail list to stay current on student progress, and in many other ways.
