Dr. Karen Engle has been named as the new principal of Clear Lake High School. The move was announced by Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith during the regular Clear Creek School Board meeting.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Clear Lake High School, CCISD and Dr. Engle,” Smith said. “She has been instrumental in creating and realizing the vision for the Education Village as principal of Clear Falls High School and also has experience in building a high school from the ground up which will be invaluable as the rebuild of Clear Lake High School begins this summer.”
Engle replaces former Principal Debra Dixon, who resigned last month. Dr. Engle’s replacement at Clear Falls High School is expected to be named during a special board meeting July 7.
Engle also served as principal of Clear Lake Elementary and Clear View High School and as assistant principal at Clear Lake Intermediate and Landolt Elementary. “Dr. Engle will be an excellent leader for CLHS. Her experience, vision, and knowledge will serve her well in this new position” said Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education Scott Bockart. “As a Lake graduate, she has strong ties within the Clear Lake community and CCISD. Dr. Engle has done an outstanding job opening and setting the course for Clear Falls High the last four years and will be greatly missed.”
“My time at Clear Falls was remarkable. Together with students, staff and parents we established a school culture, school traditions, and standards of excellence,” said Dr. Karen Engle. “I will miss the staff and students. As a former Falcon, I am looking forward to strengthening my ties in that community and helping Clear Lake High School reach new heights in educational excellence.”
