CISD makes the move

Corsicana — After more than 30 years on North 13th Street, the Corsicana Independent School District Administration has moved from its downtown location to the Lee Education Center at 2200 West Fourth Avenue.

Navarro County recently purchased the existing administration building to utilize for office space and a future courthouse annex. With the move, CISD administrative services are now housed in one location.

“We are fortunate to have the space available to house most of the administrative functions of the district,” said Dr. Diane Frost, Superintendent for CISD. “With minor adjustments, classrooms were made into office space for departments while maintaining the historical aspects of the building.”

The Business Office, Curriculum, Special Programs, Technology, Superintendent, Operations and Maintenance, Human Resources, Communications, and the Education Foundation are now located in the Lee Education Center. Region 12 will also maintain a satellite office in the building. Child Nutrition and the Clothing Center will remain located across from Drane Intermediate School.

In addition to the office space, the CISD Board of Trustees will now hold their meetings at the Lee Education Center.

While the physical office space has moved, all the phone numbers, emails and contact information will remain the same.

“No downtime is expected,” said Frost.

The next meeting of the CISD Board of Trustees, July 14, will be the first meeting in the Lee Building. Prior to the meeting beginning at 4:30 p.m., the public is welcome to an Open House to tour the Lee facilities.

“I give credit to our physical plant staff who did an incredible job of preparing the space for offices as well as moving,” said Dr. Frost. “We can better serve our school district and our public by creating this space at one location in lieu of multiple locations throughout the district. This is a cost effective measure as well as one of efficiency.”
