CCISD Students Score above State Average on STAAR

Based on preliminary results from the Texas Education Agency, 74 to 88% of all Clear Creek Independent School District students passed their respective State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests for the 2014-2015 school year. (Please note: Passing standards have not yet been set for grades 3-8 in Math.) “While we are pleased to see CCISD students score above state averages, our focus is on personalizing a child’s education, not standardizing it,” said Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. “I know this conversation is spilling beyond our district boundaries to other parts of the state and to our policy makers in Austin.”

In 2014 CCISD administrators, teachers and parents worked together to develop a community-based accountability system that not only accounts for STAAR results but also other characteristics of a quality education system. Those characteristics were prioritized by the community in a 2014 phone survey conducted by Baselice & Associates. When asked to rank the indicators most important in judging a school system, the community ranked STAAR results last. The 2014-2015 community-based accountability report is in development and will be posted online at ccisd.ss8.sharpschool.com in fall 2015. Please see STAAR passing rates for CCISD and State below:
