CCEF Fulfills a Need
The entire community benefits from public education, but tax and bond dollars are not enough to assure success for Clear Creek Independent School District’s teachers and students.
Our current economic times present significant funding issues for local school districts. The state has drastically reduced its share of funding for public education, with a direct $17.5 million cut to CCISD’s budget in 2011. Without those dollars and an additional 700 students joining CCISD each year, it is more important than ever for the Clear Creek Education Foundation to provide additional resources to help meet the increasing demands of educating our children.
Our CCISD schools need additional support:
- Tax dollars fund the minimum and basics for public education.
- Bond dollars fund needed facility upgrades and repairs.
- Donations to CCEF enrich education through hands-on, real-world experiences within the classroom.
Support for Clear Creek Independent School District’s teachers and students require participation from everyone in the 13 municipalities and two counties the district serves.
