Texas PTA Awards CCISD $100,000 Grant

Clean School Bus Program

CCISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith and CCISD Trustees Ann Hammond and Page Rander, CCISD Board of Trustees President Win Weber, Texas PTA President Leslie Boggs, Texas PTA President-Elect Lisa Holbrook, Texas PTA board member Pierr Castillo, Clear Creek Community Councils of PTA President Svetlana Hanson and CCISD Assistant Director of Transportation, Bill Conaway.

Members of the Texas PTA presented a ceremonial check to Clear Creek ISD during the December 2014 Board of Trustees meeting. The $100,000 grant is part of the Texas PTA Clean School Bus Program.

The grant money will be used to help purchase two clean-air school buses. CCISD has 71 clean air buses, 55 buses powered by CNG, 16 fueled by propane and 213 diesel school buses. “Currently clear air buses comprise 25% of the CCISD bus fleet,” said Transportation Director Dean Lewis. “We have another 12 propane buses set for delivery in March as we strive to provide the safest environment possible as we transport thousands of students each school day.”

The Texas PTA has partnered for several years with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to improve air quality for Texas youth.
