Military Families

At the Copperas Cove Independent School District, we want to do our part to make the transition to Copperas Cove as smooth as possible for you, your family and your student(s). We also want our current (and future) military families to stay abreast of activities, programs, and services that are offered in the surrounding communities and on Fort Cavazos (formerly Fort Hood). 

This particular page is designed to provide you with easy access to links and other information about CCISD and the Fort Cavazos area.
