Hiding HB 2840 from the public

If anyone is shocked at this point that CCISD wouldn’t want members of the public to speak at their meetings, welcome! We’re glad you found Clearly Corrupt. In all seriousness, the last Board of Trustees meeting was a treasure trove of missteps, with the blanket waivers being granted for larger class sizes the most egregious. […]

CCISD packs classrooms past capacity

Clear Creek ISD prides itself on publishing its little Board Report after every Board of Trustees meeting. Last week’s Board report was short and to the point, that all “consent agenda items were passed.” But have you seen the consent agenda?

Will the Board of Trustees choose a special election – or a sock puppet?

We all know the answer to this question, but let’s hypothetically assume the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees is actually trying to do right by the taxpayers and students. Take a look at the CCISD Board of Trustees agenda for June 24, 2019 again. Under “Closed Session,” the first item is a consultation with […]

What is the purpose of Jennifer Broddle?

She was entrusted with bringing “a flow of new energy and ideas” to the CCISD Board of Trustees. But has she? And what is her purpose, other than to be a sock puppet for […]

Did the SBAC adequately represent CCISD students?

Rest in Peace, Trustee Reed

He was not wearing a life vest. Trustee Reed served as a U.S. Army paratrooper and city manager for League City […]

Bye Ann Hammond, Hello Scott Bowen

Perhaps in response to how the Board of Trustees has handled issues like disciplining special education students, incumbent Ann Hammond lost Saturday’s CCISD Board of Trustees election to newcomer Scott Bowen. On the surface, this is great news. Bowen campaigned on being able to ask hard questions – and challenging the status quo. He also […]
