New Facility Request and Rental System

Columbus Independent School District is pleased to announce a new online facility request and rental system designed to provide a positive user experience for all. With the new system, reservation requests can be submitted easily and will be handled more efficiently. Renters will be able to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes and pay online. You can view & submit for facility use at:

In partnering with Facilitron, Columbus Independent School District will be launching custom facility use sites for the district and each school – allowing facility use requests to be submitted at any time. Although the process of requesting/approval/management of facility requests will be managed through Facilitron, what is implemented in the new system remains the same as dictated by Columbus Independent School District’s board policies on facility use. The district’s administrative staff makes final decisions on all facility use requests.

Facilitron will assist with the set-up of organization and user accounts along with verification of non-profit status (if applicable). Facilitron will also collect payment on Columbus Independent School District’s behalf. Payments can be submitted conveniently on Facilitron. Payment options include major credit cards, checks, ACH/eCheck, and Paypal.

The new Facilitron system is now live. Moving forward, the only way to request use of a district facility is by creating a Facilitron account and submitting a request online. Please click HERE for an introduction to placing a request If you need any assistance setting up an account and/or in submitting a facility use request, you can contact Facilitron directly at: [email protected], or by calling them at: 800-272-2962 ext 1.

Tragic Loss of Teacher

August 28, 2021

Columbus ISD was saddened to learn of the passing of Columbus Elementary School Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Kristie Geisler from COVID-19 complications last night. Mrs. Geisler has been a teacher in Columbus ISD for 22 years and was a once in a lifetime truly amazing teacher. She always guided students through the most difficult times with grace and empathy. Her constant upbeat attitude and constant smile were her trademarks. Mrs. Geisler’s true calling in life was teaching Kindergarten students, she approached her vocation with love, passion and caring. Although Mrs. Geisler will be truly missed, her legacy will live on through the many lives she touched and molded. We will miss her.
Mrs. Geisler was not able to start this school year with her students because of illness, but the warmth of her classroom environment welcomed her kindergarteners. As always, Columbus ISD is committed to the safety of students and staff and will continue to provide a safe, sanitized environment for all students and staff.
Counselors will be available Monday morning at Columbus Elementary School for all students and staff.
