Leader In MeStudents owned the day, and their learning, on January 31 during the Clear Creek ISD Leadership Showcase. The day was a supersized “show-and-tell” for students and staff of the six CCISD campuses that are now Leader In Me schools. Now in its third year of progressive implementation in the District, The Leader In Me is a whole-school transformation process that prepares students to become life-ready leaders, citing tangible improvements in the academic, behavioral and social well-being of participating students.

More than 150 business and community leaders, staff and observers from neighboring districts toured Leader In Me campuses and classrooms to watch students demonstrate their learning and progress through the immersive program. Campuses spotlighted were Armand Bayou Elementary (in year two of implementation), Bay Elementary (in year one of implementation), Falcon Pass Elementary (in year three of implementation), McWhirter Elementary (in year one of implementation), Space Center Intermediate (in year one of implementation), and Whitcomb Elementary (in year one of implementation).

Some campuses invited guests into their Character Rallies where students celebrated successes realized over the past several weeks as well as the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey’s foundation for The Leader In Me program. Habits such as “Put First Things First” and “Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood” were on full display as achievements such as perfect attendance and model behavior were cheered on by the student body. Guests also heard from student panels and wound through classroom observations visiting with students who proudly presented their goal binders and explained how job boards work in their school.

The Leader In Me in Clear Creek ISD is made possible through a combination of community donations, as well as by both campus and District-allocated funds. During the 2019 Leadership Showcase, campuses took time out to thank and recognize community donors including Visionary Partner, Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital; Campus Circle Partners, the Clear Creek Education Foundation, the City of Kemah, the City of Webster, Space Center Rotary, Seabrook Rotary and CCISD PTAs; and Change Leader Partners, the City of Clear Lake Shores, the City of Nassau Bay, and the City of Seabrook.

Clear Creek ISD, with the generous support of the Clear Creek Education Foundation and other community partners, plans to bring The Leader In Me program to an additional 12 campuses over the next five years.
