Students With AwardsA group of Clear Creek ISD high school students who worked to create guidelines for CCISD’s Safely Reopen Plan have been recognized by the Texas School Safety Center’s School Safety Spotlight Program.

The program aims to promote “schools, districts, and individuals that foster education and learning through safe and secure campuses.” The nominations are reviewed based on a list of criteria, such as knowledge, creativity and originality, engagement, impact, and evidence-based practices.

Over the summer, as Clear Creek ISD district leaders tirelessly met in virtual meetings, visited campuses, and mapped out a way to open schools for the 2020-2021 school year, the group of students, known as the CCISD Students for Safety, began doing their own research.

The Students for Safety examined reopening guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Harvard School of Public Health, in addition to brainstorming their own ideas for safety throughout each school building.

“It is heartwarming to see students care about the safety of others and responding through our campus core values,” said Clear Lake High School Assistant Principal Aaron Troyer, who nominated the students. “Their dedication to providing the safest environment possible was seen throughout the entire process.”

Throughout the course of several weeks, the students met with district and campus leadership and created plans for one-way hallways, classroom seating arrangements and lunch seating that were designed to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

The group continues to work with district leadership to share their concepts and talents. In September, some of the students put together and donated face shields to the district.
