Clear Creek ISD (CCISD) is a recognized district of academic excellence, curricular and instructional innovation, community engagement, and exceptional governance and leadership. The Association of Former Board Trustees, Clear Creek Chapter (AFBT-CCISD) donate their time to not only support their district’s momentum in student growth and celebrating the district’s successes, but in providing these white papers.

The group gathers questions submitted by the community and provides clear and helpful answers. Utilizing their combined years in public education, as well as research, the AFBT-CCISD builds awareness of the value and necessity of a robust public education system.
