As the third-largest school district in Texas and the largest employer in Northwest Harris County, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District impacts the lives of far more than the 115,000 students and thousands of teachers, employees and administrators across 88 elementary, middle and high school campuses and special program facilities that study and work within our walls. In fact, we’re proud that as a top-rated school district, the work we do within our school system extends beyond the schools and permeates within our neighborhoods and businesses, making the greater Cypress-Fairbanks community a better place to work, live, study and play. The Cypress-Fairbanks community excels because of our CFISD cheerleaders; the individuals and businesses that invest in and support our students and community at large.
Today, we highlight Isabel Rodriguez, a beloved CFISD bus driver who joined our transportation team 37 years ago on Sept. 2, 1980. Her infectious smile for every student she transports exemplifies her love for the job, and she is grateful to be able to touch lives throughout the district.

I have lived in the Cypress area since 1978, and have worked for CyFair since 1980.
Why are you so passionate about being a part of the Cypress-Fairbanks community?
My husband and I were looking for the best education for our two daughters. Cy-Fair offered everything we wanted for our girls.
How has Cypress-Fairbanks ISD impacted you, your family or your business?
My girls received a wonderful education from Cy-Fair High School, and both girls went on to Texas A&M and received their degrees. The oldest daughter went on to get her master’s. Both daughters are very successful and I attribute a lot of that to their education in Cy-Fair.
