Board Items of Interest

The board authorized an order authorizing the issuance of Clear Creek Independent School District Unlimited Tax Refunding Bonds in one or more series. The bond market is favorable at this time and the district will sell the last $67 million from its 2013 bond referendum. In addition, there is also an opportunity to refinance existing debt at a far lower rate. The district anticipates a $16 million savings over time due to low interest rates.  

District subject-matter committees of 125 teachers, parents and administrators have completed the process for reviewing instructional materials for K-12 Social Studies, High School Mathematics, and K-12 Fine Arts. The board accepted the following vendors to allow the district to purchase $7.1 million of instructional resources. 2014-15 Resource Adoption
