Vote Early!

The Clear Creek Independent School District is encouraging citizens to vote in the 2017 School Bond referendum and the CCISD School Board election. The $487 million bond referendum is intended to:

  • Build a new school or permanently increase capacity of existing schools
  • Rebuild or renovate schools between 40-50 years old
  • Conduct priority repairs across CCISD
  • Establish a elementary playground replacement fund
  • Purchase new school buses
  • Expand the District’s science magnet for intermediate students to a second location

The new facilities at CLHS are provided by the 2013 Bond. The CCISD Bond 2017 will also provide new Natatorium lighting, a swim timing system and rebuild the baseball dugouts at Lake. Our feeder school, Space Center Intermediate, will be renovating existing space and adding a Fine Arts addition. Clear Lake Intermediate will be adding a ten classroom permanent addition and removing all portable buildings.

There are many opportunities to vote early in the election. Regardless of how you vote, I encourage you to vote! Here is how:

  • Visit CLHS Ninth Grade Center, or one of nine other standard early voting locations, between April 24 – May 2 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. (except Sunday). Click here for all locations.
  • Visit any other neighborhood voting locations at a date and time most convenient for you or on Election Day, Saturday, May 6, 2017. Click here for dates and locations.

During early voting, registered voters need only show their driver’s license. If you need more information about the 2017 Bond, please visit www.ccisd.net/bond2017 or if you have questions about our improvements specific to our campus, please feel free to reach out to me with those questions. ~ Karen Engle, Ed.D.
