Joy James Elementary School


The first day is school is August 24th and it will be here before we know it. It is time for everyone to prepare for registration.

Don’t be caught standing in long lines at the campuses! Online registration at Castleberry ISD continues in 2015-2016. Parents who have a Skyward Family Access account will be able to log in to Family Access and complete a large part of the registration process.

If you are the parent or guardian of a CISD student, but have not yet signed up for your Family Access account, go to Skyward Family Access and sign up today.

Online registration is available Tuesday, July 14, 2015 through Friday July 31, 2015 at midnight. Please click here for all the information about details on online registration, as well as video instructions.

After completing the online registration process, you still must attend the On-site Registration.  However, you will receive a “fast pass” to complete proof of residency and parent identification in a quick and easy process.
