Charges and Guidelines

The Clear Creek Independent School District is initiating a Safety Committee made up of different partners to explore solutions to ensure a safe and nurturing learning environment for students and staff.  The superintendent has received an outpouring of interest and support to join this committee as well as solutions to some of the complexities of the problem.  The district is grateful for the interest and while not everyone will be able to join as a committee member, public input will be a large component of this committee’s work with electronic input after each meeting.  Additionally, the public will have an opportunity to respond to the recommendations of the committee prior to the Board of Trustees taking action.
