During a regular meeting
held on September 26, 2016, the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees approved the
charges and guidelines for a 2016-2017 Facility Advisory Committee.
The limited purpose
committee is being formed to closely examine and recommend a list of
prioritized capital projects aimed to meet the District’s growth and
replacement needs over the next three to five years. The committee, made up of
local taxpayers, meets regularly over a period of several months with district
staff, architects, engineers and demographers in order to evaluate Clear Creek
ISD’s long term course of action for the addition, renovation and replacement
of instructional facilities, support facilities, major mechanical systems,
technology and transportation.
Clear Creek ISD continues
to experience steady growth each year and, in fact, saw an increase of nearly
700 new students to the District for the 2016-2017 school year.
The Board asks the
committee to consider the impact of student demographic projections and
enrollment trends and use specific guidelines - based on safety, academic
achievement and efficiency as well long-term financial stability - in
establishing and prioritizing recommendations on major facility and capital
The work of the committee
will be completed and final recommendations made to the Board of Trustees by
February 27, 2017 allowing the Board to potentially consider a bond election
for May 6, 2017.
