Message from the SuperintendentDear Canutillo community,

Throughout American history, students from various generations have endured special challenges. Wars, economic depressions and pandemics are examples of significant events that have impacted education.

Yet, somehow, some way, learners survived the tribulation, often gaining maturity beyond their years. They were made stronger by trial and wiser through navigating the inherent uncertainty of their times. They emerged better.

On August 2, 2021, CISD welcomes back yet another generation of students who have weathered a great storm. We applaud each and every one of our students for their courage, fortitude and resilience. Rest assured that everyone will always hold a special place in our hearts and in the annals of CISD history.

We are already off to a productive start. Over the past week, our dedicated faculty and staff have been busy preparing to welcome our students back to each of our campuses for in-person instruction. 

To help you get ready for the upcoming school year, valuable resources such as registration information, school supply lists and campus open house schedules can be accessed at Back to School 2021-2022 - Canutillo Independent School District (

I am excited to share with everyone that we hosted our final Just for Kids Committee meeting where key recommendations regarding future district initiatives and projects were discussed in preparation to be brought before the Board of Trustees on August 10 for consideration of a proposed 2021 bond. 

Some of the items discussed include a new career and technology building at Canutillo High School, an additional wing added to Reyes Elementary School to alleviate overcrowding, a permanent building for Northwest Early College High School, and the purchase of land and construction of a new middle school to serve our growing community. The proposed bond will also include a large amount of funds allocated to renovations, maintenance and enhancements made to existing campuses to further support our students.

Most importantly, as we make our way back into the classroom, let's do our part to stay healthy, stay safe and stay informed. We look forward to seeing all our students’ bright smiling faces eager to learn again.
