CCISD launches Special Ed Parent Advisory Committee

November 2nd, 2018

The Clear Creek School District is seeking parent participation in the newly formed Special Education Parent Advisory Committee.

This committee will be comprised of one parent of a special education student from each of school, 44 CCISD parents. The group will meet quarterly with the CCISD superintendent, special services executive director, and other pertinent staff members to discuss topics and services related to special education.

“We are excited about this additional layer of communication and two-way partnership with our families,” said Superintendent of Schools Greg Smith. “Clear Creek ISD is already home to the first Special Education PTA in Texas, and this committee will serve as another avenue to deepen our shared commitment for students with special needs.”

The working guidelines for this committee are to consider the best interest of each student, value the perspective of each committee member, work as a team to examine services, practices and recommend improvements, and serve the needs of each student receiving special education services, Dr. Smith explained.

Applications are due no later than Nov. 14, 2018. A lottery drawing for each campus representative will be held on Nov. 15. Click here to apply. Parents should select the school in which their child attends. The group’s first meeting will be held on Thursday evening, Nov. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m.
