CCISD boundary panel changes some final recommendations

February 13th, 2019

Based on public input and further review, the Clear Creek ISD School Boundary Advisory Committee pulled back on several original boundary change recommendations for the 2019-2020 school year, moved forward with all high school boundary proposals and made some revisions for the elementary school recommendations.

Intermediate Schools

The Committee withdrew all of the original intermediate school changes, with one exception. The Coronado Apartments will still move to Clear Creek Intermediate to maintain a clean feeder from Ferguson Elementary, Clear Creek Intermediate and Clear Creek High School. There will be no other changes to the CCISD intermediate school boundaries.

Elementary Schools

The Committee withdrew its recommendation to move students from Parr Elementary to League City Elementary. The students who reside in Pecan Grove will remain at Parr Elementary. The Committee revised its recommendation to move students from North Pointe Elementary to Ward Elementary. Under the revised recommendation, College Park will stay at North Pointe Elementary and Stillwater Cove will move to Ward Elementary.

High School Changes

The Committee maintained all of its original boundary change recommendations. The District will implement high school boundary changes with the incoming 9th grade class. Students will stay at their current high school through graduation. Transportation will be provided for both the current high school students as well as the incoming 9th graders to the new high school campus. Click here for more information.

WAVE Magnet Alignment

WAVE attendance zones are determined by a student’s high school feeder pattern. If an incoming 6th grade WAVE student and/or current WAVE student has had a change in his/her high school feeder pattern, he/she may now have a change in their WAVE campus for the 2019-2020 school year. For example, if you reside in the Kirby Woods Subdivision and attend WAVE, you will move to WAVE North (Westbrook) next year versus staying at WAVE South (League City Intermediate). Similarly, all of Greene Elementary will be moved to Clear Brook High School under this proposal, meaning any WAVE students who live in the Greene Elementary zone will now move to WAVE North (Westbrook Intermediate). If an existing WAVE student would like to stay at his/her current WAVE campus versus moving to the new WAVE campus, an intradistrict transfer request should be made. The intradistrict transfer process does not open until March 1, 2019. Click here for intradistrict transfer information. Transfer requests must be filed annually.

WAVE North (Westbrook Intermediate)
Clear Brook High School
Clear Lake High School
WAVE South (League City Intermediate)
Clear Creek High School
Clear Falls High School
Clear Springs High School

Visit www.ccisd.net/sbac to see the full list of maps for the final recommendations, which were considered for approval by the school board at its Feb.25 meeting. All approved boundary recommendations will go into effect for the 2019-2020 school year.

League City school history dates back to 1873

February 1st, 2019

Third-generation League City Elementary students stand on the steps of Clear Creek ISD’s oldest school building. At least one of their grandparents attended school here.

As nearly 30, third-generation students from League City Elementary stand on the steps of their current school, they might not be fully able to grasp the rich piece of history that lives within the walls of the oldest building in the Clear Creek Independent School District.

Earlier in 2018, these students were temporarily moved back into the building where one or both of their grandparents attended school so that contractors could finish a complete rebuild of the new League City Elementary more quickly. This new building will add yet another chapter in the history of League City schools since the early 1870s.

“Our students were so excited when we moved into this building last December,” said League City Elementary Principal Xan Wood. “They see this building as a nicer facility than the one that they had before. We are trying to tell the story of how far our schools have come over the last 100 years as well, while we are here.”

The first school, named the Clear Creek School House, dates back to 1873 when George Washington Butler built a one-room cabin to be used as a school for his children and those of his neighbors. In 1890, League City’s namesake, John C. League, purchased land in the original town of Clear Creek and set out to develop the city.

As the railroad brought in new families, a larger school was needed for local children. In 1894, League built a three-room building on the corner of Kansas Avenue and 2nd Street to be used as a community school. The Hurricane of 1900 would destroy this building, and the Little Green School House was built in its place in 1901. After 79 years of being used by the district, the building was torn down in 1980. A schoolhouse museum which displays local school memorabilia and educational artifacts now stands in its place.

In 1912, a $15,000 bond was passed by the citizens of League City to build a two-story brick building for a new school on the corner of South Kansas Avenue and Walker Street. The League City School served students in grades one through twelve for 26 years before being torn down during the Great Depression.

When the 1912 League City School was demolished in 1938, the new white school building was erected in its place. This is the building where the current students of League City Elementary are learning 106 years later.

Dera Cooke, who started her teaching career in the current building 37 years ago, reflects on the history of the school with fond memories. “Back to the future is what it feels like. I was so excited to actually come back here because I really like this building,” said Cooke who came out of retirement to help League City students with a variety of subjects and test prep.

The Clear Creek Consolidated School District, now known as the Clear Creek Independent School District, was formed on April 20, 1948 during a joint meeting of the boards of trustees of the League City, Seabrook and Webster area districts. Kemah, a common school district, voted to join the consolidation three months later. League City was the largest of the communities at the time with a population of about 1,000 people. The League City School was turned into an elementary and junior high at this point, with the high school students being sent to Webster High School.

“The front entrance of the school is exactly the same and I still remember the spot in the gym in there where I had to put my nose to the wall one time,” said first-generation League City Elementary student John Lothrop. He attended school in the current building for grades one through six beginning in 1957.

Through the years after consolidation, the League City School building has served multiple purposes once the most recent League City Elementary was built in 1960. As the District grew, space was needed to house different grade levels and even different schools, such as Clear View High School and Clear Path Alternative High School. Clear Creek ISD is now celebrating its 70th anniversary this year and has gone from serving nearly 1,000 students in 1948 to now more than 42,000 in 2018.

Even through the excitement of having a new building to learn in next year, Principal Wood still sees the importance of teaching her students about the history of the building they are currently in before moving into their new space.

“As the year has progressed, the history of the building and the classrooms has been shared through staff and local community members and students find it all so fascinating,” said Wood. “Having more than 30 third-generation Mustangs and many more second-generation students, the parents and grandparents have also enjoyed coming back ‘home’ to visit.”

The new League City Elementary building, which will have a capacity of 900 students, is projected to be finished in August 2019 before the beginning of school. This project was part of the May 2017 CCISD Bond program approved by voters.

“I absolutely cannot wait for our students, teachers, and families to walk into the new building next August,” said Wood. “We have had the pleasure to watch it go up beam by beam and we celebrate each week the progress being made.”

Clear Creek ISD seeks feedback on proposed attendance zones

January 9th, 2019

The Clear Creek Independent School District School Boundary Advisory Committee will host five public meetings throughout the month of January to seek public feedback on its proposed school boundary changes for the 2019-2020 school year.

“The committee has worked tirelessly on creating a proposal that impacts the least amount of students, addresses overcrowding in many schools, develops an attendance zone for the new Florence Campbell Elementary, and improves cohesive Pk-12 feeder patterns where practicable,” SBAC Committee Chairman Sara Holder said. “The next step of our process is to receive public input on our recommendations.”

Following the five public meetings, the committee will reconvene to determine if there is a need for an adjustment before making is final recommendation to the CCISD school board on February 25 during it regular scheduled meeting. The school board will have final approval on any attendance boundary changes.

Public Meetings Dates, Times and Locations

Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m. – Clear Lake High School, 2929 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, TX 77062

*Thursday, Jan. 17 at 6:30 p.m. – Clear Springs High School, 501 Palomino Ln., League City, TX 77573

*Jan.17 and 29 meetings will be livestreamed as well at www.ccisd.net

The public may also provide written feedback via this form prior to Jan. 29 for consideration.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

North Pointe and Ward – The School Boundary Advisory Committee recommends moving 185 students from North Pointe Elementary to Ward Elementary. This recommendation involves the homes west of Highway 45 that are currently zoned to North Pointe. Ward Elementary is also closer to Highway 45 than North Pointe Elementary.

Brookwood and Robinson – This recommendation involves moving 30 students currently zoned for Brookwood Elementary to Robinson Elementary. This move provides for a continuous attendance zone along NASA Road 1 to Taylor Lake.

Landolt and Greene – It is recommended to move 64 students from Landolt Elementary to Greene Elementary. This minor boundary change includes removing two apartment complexes along FM 528 and moving them into Greene Elementary.

Hyde and Mossman – Due to overcrowding and projected growth in the furthest southwest side of the district, the committee recommends moving 237 students from Mossman Elementary to Hyde Elementary. This recommendation moves all the Lakes of South Shore neighborhoods from Mossman Elementary into Hyde Elementary School.

Goforth and Parr to League City – For the 2020-21 school year, the committee recommends extending the League City Elementary attendance zone from Texas Avenue to FM 270 and from SH 3 to IH 45 north of W. Main Street. Please note this would be a delayed boundary change due to the construction of the new League City Elementary.

Hall to Campbell – With the opening of the new Florence Campbell Elementary in August 2019, the committee is recommending the new school’s attendance zone is south of FM 518 and south of West League City Parkway. The attendance zone runs to the southernmost portion of the district in areas planned for future development as well as reduces the overcrowding at Hall Elementary.

Gilmore to Hall – Under this recommendation, Rustic Oaks along Bay Area Blvd will shift west to Hall Elementary.

Bauerschlag to Gilmore – The Landing subdivision is proposed to be zoned to Gilmore Elementary; no longer split between Gilmore Elementary and Bauerschlag Elementary as in the past. A small portion of Brittany Lakes south of League City Parkway west of Landing Boulevard will move to Gilmore Elementary under the proposal.

 

Intermediate Schools

Space Center to Clear Lake – The committee recommends moving all students who attend Clear Lake City Elementary to Clear Lake Intermediate. This move cleans up a feeder pattern issue so that all of Clear Lake City Elementary students can attend the same Pk-12 schools.

Seabrook to Space Center – This recommendation ensures students who attend Robinson Elementary will attend the same intermediate school. Currently, Robinson Elementary students split between Seabrook Intermediate and Space Center Intermediate. Under this plan, all of Robinson Elementary will attend the same intermediate school.

League City and Bayside to Clear Creek – The committee recommends moving 215 students from League City Intermediate and 157 students from Bayside Intermediate to Clear Creek Intermediate. This recommended change will result in all of Hyde Elementary attending Clear Creek Intermediate, rather than the current split between two schools.

 

HIGH SCHOOLS

Clear Springs to Clear Brook – The committee recommends extending the Clear Brook High boundary to FM 528, as well as bringing in Emerson Park Apartment Homes and the Reserve at Autumn Creek Apartments. This move of 243 students will reduce overcrowding at Clear Springs High. Under this scenario, students who attend Greene Elementary will all attend Clear Brook High, cleaning up a split feeder pattern.

Clear Falls to Clear Lake – To address overcrowding at Clear Falls High, the committee recommends bringing the subdivisions along Kirby Road into Clear Lake High. This change results in a feeder pattern of Robinson Elementary, to Space Center Intermediate to Clear Lake High.

Clear Falls to Clear Creek – The proposal is to bring the Coronado Apartments back to Clear Creek High.

 

The preliminary recommendations are listed on www.ccisd.net and below in summary. More detailed maps will be available on Jan. 14.

CCISD celebrating 70th anniversary

January 2nd, 2019

District calls on community to help honor CCISD’s past

As the Clear Creek Independent School District marks its 70th anniversary throughout this school year, there is a rich history of tradition and excellence to be celebrated.
The District was initially named the Clear Creek Consolidated Independent School District. Board members voted to change the name to the Clear Creek Independent School District on Jan. 11, 1965.

From initial consolidation in 1948 to the founding of the Johnson Space Center in 1961 and surpassing 40,000 students in 2014, the CCISD family has grown by leaps and boundaries throughout its history.

The four independent school districts of Kemah School District, Webster School District, Seabrook School District and the League City School District joined together in 1948 to better serve the educational needs of 1,000 students.

Back then, there were 119 employees, five schools and nine school buses. In 2018, Clear Creek ISD is leading the way with 5,191 staff members, a fleet of 400 buses and 42,082 students from the 13 cities of Bacliff, Clear Lake Shores, El Lago, Friendswood, Kemah, League City, the Clear Lake City neighborhoods of Houston, Nassau Bay, Pasadena, Pearland, Seabrook, Taylor Lake Village and Webster.

The stories and history of the Clear Creek Independent School District lie within the memories of residents and stakeholders of these 13 cities. Three longtime residents, educators and legends of CCISD shared their recollections of the District’s history. Visit ccisd.net/70years for a listen into the abbreviated conversation with former CCISD teacher, principal and School Board member Ralph Parr, former CCISD educator Sylvia Barker Streater, and former CCISD educator, Gaylynne Robinson Wenzel.

In conjunction with the anniversary, CCISD is looking for blasts from the past. Parents and great grandparents, former teachers and bus drivers, mayors and community members: All are invited to share their unique memories and perspectives on the history and growth of the Clear Creek Independent School District.

Written stories, photos and photo essays may be featured in one of CCISD newsletters, social media sites or the District’s 70th Anniversary webpage at www.ccisd.net/70years. Send photos and memories from years past to photos@ccisd.net.

Step 3. Take documents to assigned campus (April 30 – May 4, 2018)

To finalize registration and qualifications for the Pre-K programs, parents or guardians will need to visit the campus the student will be attending to provide the required documentation, outlined below, and complete the registration process.

  • Birth certificate
  • Immunization record
  • Two proofs of residency in the Clear Creek Independent School District (mortgage or lease and a gas, water or electric bill)

Get ready!

There is a lot parents and guardians can do before the first day of school to prepare their student to be successful from day one.

Clear Creek ISD is proud to team with ReadyRosie to bring parents modeled moments designed to deliver valuable lessons into real life situations in an engaging way. Once registered, parents will receive a weekly playlist of videos that “train” the parent how to connect fun activities with serious learning opportunities. The videos and activities are targeted to children ages 0-5 years old to instill both foundational learning and social skills. CCISD Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers are also integrating ReadyRosie into the classroom setting and curriculum.
