Board of Trustees

VOTED TOP SCHOOL BOARD IN THE REGION AND TOP FIVE IN TEXAS! 

The Clear Creek Independent School District Board of Trustees consists of seven elected members, 2 At-Large and 5 Districts, who are guardians of public trust. Board members are elected by the community and serve three year terms. The Board meets on average two times per month in a public forum. 

The members of the Board of Trustees are committed to serving the children and citizens of this school district. Their goal is to provide a high quality public education that meets the needs of our community. To achieve that goal, an operating protocol has been established that will help govern actions at meetings and in their role as trustees. The protocol will help enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of Board meetings while maintaining mutual respect and opportunities for communication. The success of Clear Creek ISD depends on a shared vision among the School Board, staff, parents and community, and they will try to the best of their ability to uphold these aspirations.

  • Board members will come prepared for each meeting.
Community Involvement
  • Board members will be courteous to all participants and request the same courtesy in return.
  • Board members will respect the civil and human rights of all members of the school community. 
  • Board members will maintain objectivity. 
  • Board members will base decisions on the available facts and independent judgment, not special interest groups.
