The Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) recognizes that parents and guardians are seeking only the best when it comes to their children. When an issue or concern arises at a child’s school, it is critical that parents are quickly connected to someone with deep knowledge on the District, processes and resolution options. In an effort to take parent engagement and satisfaction to the next level, CCISD is pleased to introduce the new Parent Assistance Center and its new director, Tony Davila.
The Parent Assistance Center was formed to help parents with needs, questions and/or concerns pertaining to their children within CCISD in an efficient manner. Davila will serve as the first district-level contact for parents, and will have direct access to district administrators to address these campus-based issues in an efficient manner. This will allow appropriate staff to stay focused on teaching and learning.
“I look forward to serving the community of Clear Creek ISD and establishing positive relationships with school personnel, parents, and community members,” said Davila. “This district is at the forefront of so many parent engagement initiatives and I hope to add to the tremendous talent pool that exists here, all of whom are working to do what’s best for our children.”
Davila brings a varied background in fostering positive and productive relationships with parents and other stakeholders in the public education system. From his start as a middle school math teacher and then assistant principal in Alvin ISD, to his most recent position working with parents and staff as a behavior specialist for Pasadena ISD, his long list of achievements contribute to a solid understanding into the inner workings of a school district. He also has experience as a positive behavior interventionist and support coach, a district youth mental health trainer and a district-wide social emotional trainer.
It is important for parents and guardians to abide by the CCISD School Board Policy which requires them to address each issue or concern at the campus level first. The Parent Assistance Center and its director can assist as a neutral party to assure that student and/or parent concerns are fully considered if they are not resolved at the campus level. As a rule, neither the director of parent assistance nor the superintendent substitutes their judgment for that of the building principal for campus level decisions within his or her authority.
Clear Creek ISD continues to strive toward achieving one of its key strategies of ‘ensuring mutual understanding and support through effective communication’ through the appointment of Tony Davila and the addition of the Parent Assistance Center.
