How CCISD handles coronavirus

We were all geared up to write about something else, but then the incompetence and arrogance at CCISD rears its head once again. This time, it’s how CCISD handles coronavirus. If you’re on the email list for CCISD, you likely received a message on Wednesday, March 11 that CCISD was “deep cleaning” buses and classrooms, […]

Getting to the root of all Ebell in CCISD curriculum problems

Yesterday we told you about a curriculum change recently approved by the CCISD Board of Trustees that effectively means intermediate students no longer need a passing grade in science or social studies in order to matriculate to the next grade level. It is important to notice that there is one person in the Superintendent’s cabinet […]

CCISD intermediate students, it’s time to party: Passing grades in science, social studies no longer required

As followers of this website know, there are plenty of so-called leaders at 2425 East Main who aren’t worth the cost of the paper their overinflated paychecks are printed on. But as our new two-part series will discuss, there’s one individual whose long track record of incompetence requires a special review, because his negative impact […]

CCISD School Start Time Committee exemplifies lip service

Remember the ill-fated CCISD School Start Time Committee (SSTAC)? The district probably thought we forgot, but no, we didn’t. After five meetings and digging through a lot of research, the SSTAC presented just two options to the general public: Leave everything as-is. Hooray, status quo! Move everything back later by 20 minutes, thereby putting high […]

Our daughters are not safe in CCISD schools

It’s very easy to miss Vawn Stearnes’s plea to the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees at the November 18, 2019 Board meeting. The meeting is dominated by the School Start Time Committee and Dr. Greg Smith’s milquetoast recommendations, as well as Targeted Improvement Plans for Brookside Intermediate, Stewart Elementary, and Clear View High School.

The SCOTUS case that can help Special Ed parents

Time and again, parents of Special Education students submit heartbreaking stories of abuse and neglect at the hands of Clear Creek ISD to us, and we’re powerless to stop this. We can’t force CCISD to provide services, to respond to parents in a timely fashion, and to protect arguably the most vulnerable students in the […]

Did Dr. Greg Smith deserve a pay raise?

When us mere mortals come before our bosses for our annual review, we have to show results. We have to show that we’ve been doing our jobs, meeting the goals we set last year, and generally not screwing things up so badly that the media takes note. And then, after all that, our average pay […]

Board to Bowen: Shut up, kid

UPDATED: Thank you to the concerned citizen who sent in some additional screenshots via ZippyShare! As we’ve said, the September 30, 2019 Board of Trustees meeting was a veritable gold mine of Clear Creek ISD’s arrogance and incompetence.

Why school start times need to be left alone

UPDATE: After four meetings, the CCISD School Start Time Committee (SSTAC) recommended moving the school start times to 20 minutes later. This poses several problems: The whole point of later school start times was for the high school kids to get more sleep, right? Twenty minutes isn’t going to make a difference. Now high school […]
