According to the deed of records which was filed on February 28, 1901, "Twenty resident citizens of the village of Crandall requested an election for the purpose of incorporating for free school purpose as provided by law." The election was held on March 9, 1901. The citizens also voted at the same time to "levy a tax of 0.25 cents on $100 to raise money so the district might float bonds to build a good school building." The building was completed in 1903 at a cost of $9,000. The school had five teachers with an enrollment of about "225 scholars." CISD is proud to celebrate over "100 years of excellence."
