CCISD Schools Named Prestigious National Blue Ribbon Schools

League City – The Clear Creek Independent School District is pleased to announce that Bay Elementary School in Seabrook and Stewart Elementary School in Kemah have been selected as National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education. The announcement was made this afternoon by Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public elementary, middle and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or academic progress that demonstrates dramatic gains in student achievement.

“Only 25 schools were nominated in Texas and CCISD is home to two of them,” explained CCISD Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Holly Hughes. “The students, staff and families at both Bay and Stewart have worked extremely hard and should be extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished.” James F. Bay Elementary is led by Principal Erin Tite. Lavace Stewart Elementary School is led by Principal Britani Moses.  

Since its inception in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has recognized more than 7,000 Great American Schools. Representatives from each of the 332 schools selected as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 will gather for a ceremony in Washington, DC where their achievement will be officially honored by the U.S. Department of Education.

All schools that have been nominated for the 2014 honor were selected as exemplary high performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Each school has an economically disadvantaged population of 40 percent or greater.

CCISD has three previous National Blue Ribbon schools, including Stewart Elementary which earned the designation in 2007. Clear Lake High School and Clear Lake Intermediate School were named National Blue Ribbon Schools during the 1986-1987 school year.
