This resource was created for families facing temporary financial uncertainty resulting from the slumping economy, job loss or other significant challenges impacting family income. Clear Creek ISD Cares is pleased to share the following resources specifically for the purposes of supporting our students through minimizing disruption to services and their day-to-day academic and extracurricular routines. It is important to note that these resources are offered with the utmost discretion.
If your family’s income has fallen below a certain threshold due to a sudden or temporary job loss (view federal income chart), there are certain benefits that you are entitled to, and have been contributing to as a tax payer throughout your career. These benefits include:
- Free or discounted breakfast and lunch for students: If you believe you qualify for this program, visit the following website to learn more and register. Read More About the Free & Reduced Meal Program
- Free Pre-K instruction at one of CCISD’s 26 elementary campuses: If you have pre-school aged children currently enrolled in costly day care, you may qualify to enroll that child(ren) in one of these 26 schools. Although most District Pre-Kindergarten programs are half-day, CCISD is piloting extended day Pre-k programs at Clear Lake City Elem, Greene Elem, League City Elem, McWhirter Elem, Stewart Elem and Whitcomb Elem.

Additionally, if you are experiencing any of the hardships below, the District urges you to take full advantage of District resources and personnel to help you identify the right solutions for you and your family.
If a family finds the need to seek temporary alternate living arrangements due to a loss in income, the student may not have to transfer to a different school. Follows are some examples of alternate living arrangements which qualify for exceptions to school zoning policies:
Moving from a home to an apartment or smaller home? Families who downsize may apply for an intra-district transfer (campus to campus) so your student can remain at their home campus.
Moving in with family or friends, whether inside or outside the District, due to economic hardship? In addition to qualifying for various benefits, temporary displacement enables the student to remain at their home campus. To learn more, contact Dr. Jeanne deVezin at 281.284.0083 or e-mail Jeanne at email@example.com.
Will your child or children remain in the district to finish the school year despite the family's need to relocate? Contact Dr. deVezin to plan for this transition.
Clear Creek ISD believes involvement in extracurricular activities enhances the educational experience of our students. The District is committed to ensuring that temporary changes in a family’s budget do not need to impact the student’s participation in enrichment activities be it band, dance or baseball. If your current circumstance makes it difficult to continue participation in Clear Creek ISD extracurricular activities, your campus extracurricular leaders are here to help bridge any gaps during times of transition such as waiving instrument rental fees, uniform costs, etc.
