The mission of the Clear Creek ISD Department of Special Services, the innovative leader in inclusive education, is to ensure that each student discovers and develops his or her unique talents and interests while realizing personal success and positively impacting their world through a new system distinguished by:
enhanced continuum of supports, and
extraordinary educational experiences.
• Each student sustains a fulfilled life actualizing his or her personal talents and interests.
• Each student optimizes his or her potential by continuously setting and achieving individual learning goals.
• Each student actively enriches and advances his or her community and greater society.
We believe in educating students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. Each student has access to an appropriate learning environment and an opportunity for education with non-disabled students to the maximum extent appropriate at his or her zoned school or at a site as close as possible to his or her neighborhood school.
Supporting Our Parents
Parent Support Services - CCISD Department of Special Education Services in collaboration with parents are proud to present a variety of ways parents can be involved with their child's education. Please use our navigation on the LEFT to view all of our support material.
Special education services are provided at all Clear Creek ISD campuses. Specialized programs are strategically located throughout Clear Creek ISD for students in need of a district class placement. These are known as district classes. If your home campus does not offer the specialized program your child needs, Clear Creek ISD will provide transportation to the most appropriate program to meet the child’s individual needs.
If a student has previously received special education services, the Clear Creek ISD home school of your child will hold a temporary Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) Committee meeting upon the student registering for school so that the student may start receiving services immediately.
If a student has not previously received special education services, but you are concerned that a disability may exist, you may request a Student Success Team (SST) meeting to consider ways to meet the student’s needs.
If there is documentation identifying a disability requiring specialized services immediately for the student to be able to attend school, it is suggested that parents contact the campus principal in advance of the time the student is to start school. Reports from hospitals, previous schools and teachers, and other sources will be helpful in determining the needs of your child.
CCISD also employs a Section 504 Coordinator to ensure all students with disabilities are provided equal opportunities to succeed. To be served under Section 504, a student must be determined to: (1) have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; or (2) have a record of such an impairment; or (3) be regarded as having such an impairment. Section 504 requires that school districts provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to qualified students in their jurisdictions who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
