    The district hopes that satisfactory conclusions to all complaints can be reached through an informal process; however, if not, both parents and employees have the right to a formal process as stated in the Corpus Christi ISD School Board Policy. Even after starting the formal complaint process, employees and parents are encouraged to use the informal process to solve problems.

    For more information about the grievance procedures, please refer to:

  • Title IX


    The following information is provided in response to 34 C.F.R. Part 106.8 of the 2020 Title IX Regulations, mandating notice of a nondiscrimination policy and adoption and publication of grievance procedures that provide for the prompt and equitable resolution of student and employee complaints.

    In accordance with Title IX, the District does not, and is required not to; discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities. The requirement not to discriminate extends to employment. As a school district serving students in kindergarten through grade 12, the District is not subject to provisions in Title IX Regulations (Subpart C) prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in admissions and recruitment. However, the district does not discriminate on the basis of sex in admissions or transfer requests.

    The District has designated and authorized the following employee as the Title IX Coordinator to address concerns or inquiries regarding discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and gender-based harassment:

    Title IX Coordinator: Kimberley Donaldson James, M.Ed.

    Physical Address: 801 Leopard Street, Corpus Christi, TX 78403

    Email Address:

    Telephone Number: (361) 695-7440

    Any individual may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, at any time, including during non-business hours, by mail, phone, or email.

    During district business hours, reports may also be made in person to the Title IX Coordinator or her designee.

    To view an electronic copy of the District’s Title IX policies, go to FFH (LEGAL) and (LOCAL) and DIA (LEGAL) and (LOCAL).

    To obtain a copy of the District’s Title IX policies, including the grievance process that complies with 34 C.F.R. § 106.45(b) of the 2020 Title IX Regulations, please contact the Title IX Coordinator as noted above or at

    Upon receiving an allegation of sex-based harassment, the Title IX Coordinator will promptly respond in accordance with board policies FFH and DIA. Inquiries about the application of Title IX may be referred to the district’s Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights of the Department of Education, or both.

    Corpus Christi ISD's complete District of Innovation Plan as approved 4-26-21


    District of Innovation Checklist

    Figure: 19 TAC §102.1307(d)

    Innovation District

    Please submit, on district letterhead, a letter to the commissioner of education stating the date that the board of trustees adopted a resolution to develop a local innovation plan for the designation of the district as an Innovation District.

    A local innovation plan must be developed for a school district before the district may be designated as an Innovation District. A local plan must provide for a comprehensive educational program for the district, which may include:

    1) Innovative Curriculum

    2) Instructional Methods

    3) Community Participation

    4) Governance of Campuses

    5) Parental Involvement

    6) Modifications to the school day or year

    7) Provisions regarding the district budget and sustainable program funding

    8) Accountability and assessment measures that exceed the requirements of state and federal law; and

    9) Any other innovations prescribed by the board of trustees.

    A local innovation plan must identify requirements imposed by the Education Code that inhibit the goals of the plan from which the district should be exempted on adoption of the plan. The local innovation plan should specify the manner in which a particular statute inhibits one or more goals of the plan. Please use the form below to check the statutes specifically identified in your district’s local innovation plan as inhibiting a goal of the plan. Checking a specific statute does not necessarily indicate eligibility for an exemption from all subsections of the statute. The local innovation plan controls with regard to the specific exemptions adopted by a district. The form below provides a reporting mechanism to fulfill the reporting requirements of the statute. Entire sections of code may not be eligible for exemption and each district should consult its legal counsel in developing its innovation plan.

    Exemptions claimed for an Innovation District apply only to the specific provision of the Texas Education Code (TEC) cited, which may or may not be governed by a separate legal requirement. The exemption does not relieve the district of any requirement imposed by other state or federal law or a duty imposed under federal regulation, grant compliance, agency rule applicable to a charter school or a local legal requirement. Each district should consult its legal counsel to ensure adoption of necessary local policies to ensure compliance with all applicable legal requirements.

    Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of exemptions.
