Visit Crandall ISD

Crandall Independent School District (CISD) is a growing rural school district located 23 miles southeast of Dallas along Highway 175. It includes 84.9 square miles and more than 2,000 students and over 250 employees. CISD is fully accredited (PK-12) by the Texas Education Agency and the Southern Association of Colleges and Universities.

CISD recently celebrated “100 years of excellence.” According to the deed of records which was filed on February 28, 1901, “Twenty resident citizens of the village of Crandall requested an election for the purpose of incorporating for free school purpose as provided by law.” The election was held on March 9, 1901. The citizens also voted at the same time to “levy a tax of 0.25 cents on $100 to raise money so the district might float bonds to build a good school building.” The building was completed in 1903 at a cost of $9,000. The school had departments and five teachers with an enrollment of about “225 scholars.”
