Is CCISD trying to start another war with League City residents?

Part of the 2017 Clear Creek ISD Bond Program includes $24,796,922 to upgrade the main transportation center located at 2748 FM 518 in League City. As part of those upgrades, CCISD is expanding the location into a wooded area – a little too close for nearby residents’ comfort. Because CCISD wrapped up this upgrade into […]

Mainstream media shines spotlight on CCISD special ed busing debacle

Incompetence. Arrogance. Cowardice. Corruption. These are all words that accurately describe CCISD and its leadership. However, rarely are all of these characteristics on display at once. But that’s exactly the special treat we received last Thursday courtesy of Fox 26 Houston, which aired a news report covering how, despite now being three weeks into the […]

We’re still waiting for agenda transparency

Clear Creek ISD, much like the creek the District is named for, has a serious transparency problem. That is very obvious in its Board of Trustees meeting agendas, which are published on the CCISD website – with a catch. The BoardBook public agenda packet expands on the agenda items, but only provides a “tracking” sheet […]

CCISD bungles Special Ed busing

While parents fully expected the buses to be running late at the beginning of the school year, Special Ed parents did not expect their children’s bus routes to be completely deleted. But that’s exactly what happened over at CCISD, affecting 285 students. As of August 22, 95 Special Ed students did not have transportation. Where […]

CCISD doesn’t make the TEA grade

It’s the first day of school, and Clear Creek ISD is already struggling to make the grade. The Texas Education Agency released its 2018-2019 accountability ratings, and CCISD has slipped from an A to a B. You know who else has a B? Houston ISD, that hot mess to the north. CCISD is slipping, there’s […]

What’s going on with CCISD’s busing?

Parents received an email from Clear Creek ISD this week telling them that they could now view their child(ren)’s busing information in Skyward. On the surface, this is a fantastic idea, and we applaud CCISD for trying to consolidate information in one system. But it wouldn’t be CCISD if there wasn’t some sort of screw-up. […]

Let’s make re-registering kids as difficult as possible!

Re-registration forms opened up last week for Clear Creek ISD schools, and as parents discovered, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. With all the money CCISD spends on IT, you would think that re-registration could be a user-friendly experience. You would be very, very wrong. First of all, parents and guardians must go through 15 different […]

CCISD finally tightens volunteer background checks, but is it enough?

We know we can’t let just anyone into our children’s schools. While the majority of people who sign up to volunteer are genuinely interested in making the year magical for our children and are good people who can be trusted, there are always a few that can’t. Clear Creek ISD has finally woken up to […]

TEA denied CCISD’s request for reconsideration (2015)

As we know, Clear Creek ISD has a long, sordid history with its Special Education program. It’s going to take three years to implement all the recommendations from the Gibson report, and several Special Education parents have had to sue to get CCISD to pay attention to their plight. And we can’t forget how one […]

Win Weber: The newest storm trooper?

At the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees meeting on Monday night, the Board voted 5-1 to fill the District 2 position (Chris Reed’s former spot) with Winifred Bandy Weber, aka Win Weber. Ms. Weber formerly held that spot before deciding not to run again, leaving the position open for Mr. Reed to run unopposed. […]
