All Clear Creek Independent School District schools and support facilities are physically closed for the remainder of the school year. Distance learning will continue through May 28, 2020 for students. Unfortunately, athletic fields and playgrounds are closed for visitors due to the stay-at-home orders.  Plans for graduation and other Class of 2020 events will be released soon.  Read an important message from the superintendent and board president here.

Modified Grading System

The Clear Creek Independent School District is joining a growing number of educational institutions and moving the second semester to a Pass/Fail grading system due to the Coronavirus crisis. Under this modified grading system, daily grades that culminate in a 60% or higher average will constitute as a Pass and credit earned for the semester for students in grades 6-12. Click here to learn more.

Based on public input, the CCISD Board of Trustees will hold a special board workshop to discuss this change in more detail on Monday, April 20, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. This will be a virtual meeting due to COVID-19. The public may view the meeting on www.ccisd.net.
