Office of Communications
Welcome to the Office of Communications (Formally the Office of Public Information)
The Office of Communications is here to provide timely and accurate information to the public, encourage parents and the community at-large to be involved in our schools, and engage all stakeholders in education issues that are important to the greater Clear Lake area.
Communication Tools We Use to Reach You!
Our nationally-recognized website receives approximately 600,000 hits per month according to Google Analytics. This is our primary source for news and information. The website is updated regularly and features important news and information, student highlights, upcoming events, Education Matters blog and rumor watch, and award-winning videos. Nationally, ccisd.net was ranked as the best education website for a large school district by SchoolE Awards.
The Current is our monthly electronic newsletter currently emailed to all parents, employees, key communicators and those who elect to stay up-to-date on the happenings in and around CCISD. If you are not on our mailing list, join us by clicking here: The Current
Snapshots is a weekly photo album, highlighting our students and staff. The District collects hundreds if not thousands of photos throughout the school year and this is the best way that we can share them with you! If you are a member of the Current you also receive Snapshots. If you only want to receive Snapshots, make that selection when enrolling in our electronic communications: Sign up for Snapshots
