FAQ

The Clear Creek Independent School District Board of Trustees approved school boundary changes for the 2019-2020 school year. The changes affect 18 elementary schools, two intermediate schools and five comprehensive high schools. Visit www.ccisd.net/sbac for maps and details.

Q. How do I know if my child’s school has changed?

Wait until Friday, March 1, 2019 to allow for detailed maps by address to be available. The best way to determine the school your child will attend next year is to put your address in our School Finder website, which will be updated on March 1, 2019.  Parents can also view boundary maps at www.ccisd.net/sbac. Those impacted by the boundary changes will also receive communication via mail, email and phone.

Q. I would like my child to stay at his campus next year since he is a rising 5th grader. Is that possible?

A. It is possible. You will need to apply for an intradistrict transfer and indicate “school boundary change” on the front page. Applications will be open from March 1 through April 1. Parents are responsible for transportation for intradistrict transfers.

Q. My student attends Clear Falls High School and is currently a sophomore. Will he have to move to the new high school attendance zone, which is Clear Lake High School?

A. No. The changes to high school attendance zones will be implemented with the incoming 9th grade class. Current high school students do not change high schools.

Q. With this grandfathering of current high school students, will my child still receive bus transportation?

A. Yes. If your high school student currently receives bus transportation to his/her current high school, he/she will still receive bus transportation to his/her current high school. Details on bus routes will be available over the summer.

Q. I have an 8th grade student and our neighborhood has been zoned to a different high school. Which high school will she attend?

A. Current 8th grade students who live in a neighborhood that has been rezoned to a new high school will start their freshmen year at the new high school.

Q. Even though we are grandfathered under this plan, I want my sophomore to move to the new-zoned high school. Will she have to apply for a transfer?

A. Yes. For example, if your student is a sophomore at Clear Springs High School and your neighborhood will be rezoned to Clear Brook High School, you will need to apply for a transfer request if you would like to go to Clear Brook High School. These requests will be considered under a priority status and will be approved. The request must be filed by April 1, 2019 or the District will automatically assign your sophomore to attend the high school he/she attended this year. NOTE: If your child applies for a transfer request, he or she will also need to apply for a UIL Waiver to ensure eligibility for play. This is a step that is necessary since technically the boundary change implementation is for the incoming freshmen class and would not apply to students in 10th, 11th and 12th grade who choose to attend the new high school.

Q. I want my sophomore to move to the new-zoned high school and she has applied for a transfer request. Will she receive bus transportation to the new-zoned high school along with the incoming 9th graders?

A. Yes. For example, if you live in a neighborhood that has been rezoned to a new high school and the neighborhood is currently eligible for bus transportation, a bus route will be available to both the current high school your student attends as well as the new high school. In other words, there will be bus transportation to both the current high school and the new-zoned high school for the 2019-2020 school year in neighborhoods that are eligible for bus transportation.

Q. I am planning to move into a neighborhood that has been rezoned to a new high school and my child is going to be a junior. Which school does he attend?

A. The boundary change is effective for incoming 9th grade students only. For example, if you move into Kirby Woods Subdivision, which is currently zoned for Clear Falls High School, your junior would attend Clear Falls High School along with his junior cohort.

Q. I heard WAVE campus assignments will be affected by this boundary change?

A. Yes. While not technically part of the Board approved school boundary changes, there will be a slight adjustment to WAVE magnet assignments for students who reside in the Robinson Elementary and Greene Elementary attendance zones. The District will be communicating directly with those few students who will be impacted by a change in their WAVE assignment. Science Magnet assignments are not affected by the board-approved recommendations.
