Safety UpgradesThe Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the final technology phase of the district-wide security upgrades project at the school board meeting on October 28, 2019. Amendment No. 3 establishes a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) of $12,140,796 from 2017 Bond funds and was awarded to Drymalla Construction Company, Inc.

“This is work that evolved from the CCISD School Safety Committee that convened in 2018,” said CCISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith. “These projects reinforce our commitment to maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for children and go beyond the initial recommendations of the committee.”

The Board unanimously approved a set of recommendations outlined by the District’s School Safety Committee in July 2018. The approved recommendations addressed facilities, security personnel, student mental wellness, security training and protocols, policies and procedures, and communications to improve overall safety for students and staff.

The amendment will implement Phase 2 of technology upgrades, which include controlled access points, intrusion detection and surveillance cameras at 36 CCISD campuses and buildings. Technology upgrades to the remaining 13 campuses were part of the first phase and are already underway.

“The shared vision our Board of Trustees has with District Leadership is paramount in continually meeting the needs of our students here in CCISD,” said Director of Safe and Secure Schools Brian Palazzi. “Their recent approval of the technology/security upgrades is an essential first step in a multifaceted approached to keep all of our students physically, socially and emotionally safe.”

This is the final planned amendment for this project. Construction for Phase 2 is scheduled to begin immediately with completion planned for December 2020.
