Channelview Independent School District is a school district in Channelview, a census-designated place in an unincorporated area of Harris County, Texas, United States.[1][2] As of 2012, CISD's superintendent is Greg Ollis.

In 2010, the school district is rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[3] Viola Cobb Elementary is the first exemplary school in Channelview ISD history


The district was established in 1937.[4]

Class organization[edit]

Starting in the 2007-2008 school year, Channelview ISD will be combining the Primary and Elementary schools into K-5 schools and Cobb Elementary will take all 6th Grade students in the district. In the spring of 2008, CISD will open the new Kolarik Freshman campus, right next to the current high school. Formerly, Channelview ISD operated on a K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12 grade level split.[5]

School uniforms[edit]

All students in grades Kindergarten through 8 are required to wear school uniforms.[6] The Texas Education Agency specifies that the parents and/or guardians of students zoned to a school with uniforms may apply for a waiver to opt out of the uniform policy so their children do not have to wear the uniform; parents must specify "bona fide" reasons, such as religious reasons or philosophical objections.[7]
