Background: CSISD is committed to attracting the highest quality faculty and staff members, We are proud to be in a community like College Station that attracts many good teachers and staff members from other areas of Texas and the nation. CSISD annually hires a higher percentage of teachers with successful experience. Teaching positions in CSISD attract a large number of applicants, and we have a lower teacher turnover rate than the state. The most recent CSISD Texas Academic Performance Report from 2015-2016 indicates that the state turnover rate for teachers was 16.5 percent and the CSISD rate was 11.6 percent.

Once teachers and staff members arrive in CSISD we have a system of professional development that builds upon their knowledge base and helps provide the skills for success in the classroom. New Teacher University (NTU) is a system of professional development in instructional strategies, relationship building and what it takes to be successful in College Station. Teachers new to CSISD received three days of intensive training in August, with two to four follow up days of training and support throughout their first year. CSISD also provides staff development ongoing staff development in a variety of areas for over 800 teachers annually. During the 2016-17 school year, 45 teachers across CSISD participated in the Teacher Leadership Academy. Teacher Leadership Academy is a program designed to foster leadership while still in the classroom. Meetings happen monthly throughout the school year and include leadership lessons and the teachers taking on a "Risk Taking Opportunity" that benefits the school and/or district.
