CCISD Removes Extracurricular Fees

The Clear Creek Independent School District has put a hold on collecting the $50.00 district extracurricular fee which was originally imposed in 2011. During the July 27, 2015 regular school board meeting, the superintendent indicated the budget outlook for this year was promising due to the fiscally responsible actions of the school board coupled with additional state funding.

“When the Texas legislature significantly reduced its funding for public education in 2011, our community stepped forward and supported the implementation of an extracurricular fee. The fees, which brought in $450,000 annually, were necessary to sustain funding for the arts and athletics,” said Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. “We would like to thank our parents for supporting CCISD’s extracurricular programs and I hope they recognize their financial efforts allowed us to maintain these excellent programs.”

 

In 2011, the legislature cut school funding by more than $17 million to the Clear Creek Independent School District. This reduction forced the school district to reduce departmental budgets, eliminate staff positions, freeze salaries and impose the extracurricular fee. Over the years, CCISD has worked through these challenges and it is in a financial position to remove these fees for 2015-2016 school year.
