The Clear Creek School Board has been recognized as the Regional Board of the Year and is one of the five finalists for the annual Texas School Board of the Year Award.

“School boards in Region 4 districts provide effective leadership and dedicated service that benefit more than 1.1 million school children. On July 30, 2014, the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees was selected as the 2014 Region 4 Honor Board by a committee of superintendents from other Region 4 school districts. The Clear Creek ISD Board has provided visionary leadership, working with Dr. Greg Smith and the CCISD team leading the way in the 21st Century,” said Region 4 Executive Director Dr. Pam Wells.

“Clear Creek ISD is well respected in Region 4 and across the state. CCISD will be a tremendous representative of the school boards in our region. We congratulate the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees for this well-deserved award and wish them well as they join the prestigious group of school boards who were nominated for state Outstanding School Board.”

The annual statewide search for the Texas Honor Board is organized by the Texas Association of School Administrators. The criteria for consideration is lengthy with topics ranging from educational vision and fiscal management to community involvement and personal commitment to duty.

“If who we are supersedes what we do, then the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees have served the 40,000 children, 5000 employees, and 13 municipalities effectively, efficiently and honorably over time,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Smith,. “The team of seven trustees may come from different cultures, careers, and opinions but they are united by a spirit of exploration and the desire to see the possibilities beyond what is present or obvious.”

The CCISD Board of Trustees is one of five finalists in Texas. The Texas Association of School Administrators will name the state’s Outstanding Board in September.
