WHO WE ARE
The CFISD Community Leadership Committee is a volunteer group of parents, business people, and retirees who believe that having a strong independent school district is important to the economic well-being of the Cypress-Fairbanks community. Our local schools are the heart of our community.
LEARN how local, state, and federal issues impact the quality of education in CFISD; SHARE information with parent, taxpayer, and business communities, enabling them to become more knowledgeable and engaged; and COMMUNICATE with elected officials, making them aware of the impact of proposed legislation on quality public education.
