The Clear Creek Independent School District is known for providing children an array of opportunities to Achieve, Contribute and Lead with Integrity. The school district’s philosophy and promise are deeply rooted in a set of core values and lifted by the spirit of exploration. The academic and fiscal portrait of the school district are strong as indicated by multiple honors such as a District of Innovation, state and international fiscal management awards, and being named a top place to work by Forbes and the Houston Chronicle.

Much of the school district’s success is attributed to the strong leadership of Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Smith has led this 42,000 student, 5,000 employee and 100 square mile strong school district for the past 13 years. He has made the decision to retire in December 2020.

The Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees has begun the process of identifying the next leader and has secured the consultant services of Hazard, Young, Attea Associates (HYA) to assist.

The Board is committed to bringing our community along on this important journey.
