The real superintendent problem: DuPont and Polsen think they’re smarter than you

A firestorm of controversy has erupted in the community after the public debut of the man chosen to be CCISD’s next superintendent, and CCISD has gone into full damage control mode.

Analysis: Expect new CCISD superintendent Eric Williams to be a total disaster

Monday night, Clear Creek ISD’s Board of Trustees gleefully announced the identity of their so-called “sole finalist” for the job of superintendent. And guess what? We suspected the choice would be bad, but it’s an even more epic disaster than we thought. As a reminder, CCISD needs a new head honcho to replace Dr. Greg […]

The rules don’t apply, Jay Cunningham edition

It’s become abundantly clear that the rules don’t apply to Board of Trustees members. District 5 Trustee Jay Cunningham’s children are barely, if not completely, unaffected by policies that he votes for. And the rules don’t apply to Mr. Cunningham at all, as was highlighted at the Clear Springs High School graduation ceremony on June […]

Board gaslights parents, students regarding grading policies

After the huge outcry from parents and students alike on Clear Creek ISD’s grading standards and grading policy for the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year, you’d think the Board of Trustees would be willing to revisit the policy. You’d think that, given how other school districts have been able to allow students to […]

Lowered standards, penalized high achievers are CCISD’s COVID-19 response

Updated 4/10/20: Dickinson ISD has a better policy. For high school, it counts the third 9 week period, and if students get higher marks during the fourth 9 weeks, that is averaged in to the final semester grade. CCISD can easily copy and paste this policy. All they have to do is literally select “copy” […]

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. And the Six’s arrogance and incompetence came out in full force with Consent Agenda Item 7, Consider […]

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? Pay close, close attention to Item 6: Consider Approval of Class Sizes Over 22:1 […]
