Safe & Drug Free Schools
Clear Creek ISD believes strongly in supporting drug education for students, parents and staff. The District's Drug Education Office oversees a variety of programs ranging from Lions Quest, a character building program that encourages students to make healthy lifestyle choices, to Safe School Ambassadors, a program that trains diverse and socially influential student leaders to intervene with their friends and classmates when they see teasing, bullying or any behavior that involves their peers mistreating each other.

Bad Weather: Is School Open?
As we all know, weather on the Gulf Coast of Texas can be anything but predictable! In the event of inclement weather, listen to your local radio or TV stations for information about school closings or go directly to www.ccisd.net. Clear Creek ISD will also initiate an automated phone call alerting parents of school closures or delays. Please be sure to keep your contact information updated with your campus at all times. CCISD will also post information on its community hotline at 281-284-0027.
Shelter in Place
With Clear Creek ISD located near many chemical plants, it is important for our parents to be aware staff is regularly trained on safety procedures in the event there is an event at a nearby plant. In the event there is a shelter in place, the school will prohibit students and staff from exiting the building and will not allow people inside the building until an all-clear is given. This is for the protection of children. The HVAC system will also be shut down until the all-clear is given.
The Department of Facility Services also facilitates the rental of district campuses for public use. Please visit the Facility Reservation web page for more information.
