Dr. Roosevelt Nivens

Dr. Roosevelt Nivens was named the 11th Superintendent to serve Community ISD on July 28, 2015, which just happens to be the anniversary of the exact day our district was consoloated in 1947. At that time the District was made up of 235 students in twelve grades and the very first graduating class in 1948 was made up nine seniors. On May 30, 2019, Community High School graduated 133 seniors and 100% of our newest class of alumni have been accepted into a college, university, trade school or military service!


It's an Exciting Time in the Brave Nation

  • We are a GROWING family and we will continue to grow as more houses are built and roads expanded in our area. You may have heard me say our goal is to become a destination district. We want Community ISD to be a district that stands out on the map as a place where families want to move and teachers want to work. What makes this District and our four communities that kind of special place is the passionate and caring people who are here for one purpose: your child.

    We do not take for granted that the parents of over 2,600 young people are putting their trust in us each and everyday with their most prized possession. We take that responsibility to heart and work everyday to ensure that we are trustworthy as educators, neighbors and stewards of your tax dollars. We strive to be transparent in all that we do and encourage your participation and feedback throughout your child's time in Community ISD. We are committed to providing EVERY child with the environment and tools he or she needs to be successful. It is our sole purpose to inspire students, staff and the community to believe, lead, unite and excel.
