The month of January in Texas is School Board Recognition Month, and the Clear Creek ISD joins other districts across the state as they honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for public education.
“Serving on a local school board is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of rapid change and financial challenges,” said CCISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith. “These men and women are elected to tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. We are extremely grateful for their efforts on behalf of our students and staff.”
Each school board trustee in Texas is required to complete eight hours of training every year. The CCISD Board of Trustees went above and beyond in the 2014-2015 school year completing a total of 203 hours instead of the required 56. Dr. Laura DuPont serves as President, Page Rander is Vice President, and Charles Pond is Secretary while Ann Hammond, Ken Baliker, Win Weber and Jay Cunningham serve as trustees.
The Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees was selected as the 2014 Region 4 Honor Board, a state finalist for the top honor board in Texas and received the 2014 Texas School Board Excellence Award at the Texas A&M University John Hoyle Administrative Leadership Institute.
The CCISD Board of Trustees provide a crucial link between the community and classroom. “Our children benefit every day from the hard work and long hours contributed by our trustees,” said Dr. Smith. “Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’”
