This is the image for the news article titled Clear Creek ISD Unveils the CCISD Passport Summer Exploration ProjectSince most in-person summer camps have been cancelled due to COVID-19, students may be more limited in the activities they can participate in over the summer.

Today, Clear Creek ISD launches the CCISD Passport, a treasure trove of virtual experiences for students to access from the comfort of their homes. This project will take kids of all ages on virtual trips to a wide array of destinations for seven straight weeks. Some will even take place in 360° Virtual Reality so families are encouraged to purchase a VR headset for as little as $10 or make one at home.

Incoming sixth grader Whitten Vandygriff from Westbrook Intermediate School introduces a new world each week and participants can make their way through it at their own pace. Read-alouds, book recommendations and hands-on activities enhance the experience as they explore unique topics like nature’s wonders, outer space, and the arts. Students will have access to all worlds throughout the summer so they can go back to their favorites at any time.

CCISD librarians throughout the district split into groups in order to build this collection of resources over two and a half months. One group created read-alouds from home while a second group focused on providing access to digital resources. A third group came up with Makerspace activities for students to do at home and a fourth group gathered links for virtual field trips.

Though participation is optional and students will not be graded, there will be a downloadable passport available for students who would like to keep track of their travels. Themed souvenir badges for each world will also be available for parents to download and print for their younger travelers.

The program launches today and concludes during the last week in July.
