Leader in MeThe Clear Creek Independent School District welcomes six additional campuses to The Leader In Me program for the 2019-2020 school year. Brookwood Elementary, Campbell Elementary, Landolt Elementary, Stewart Elementary, Clear Lake Intermediate and Clear View High School are all implementing the immersive and evidence-based program aimed to prepare students to become life-ready leaders.

In 2016, Clear Creek ISD launched a commitment to bring The Leader In Me to schools to create a culture of empowerment for students, staff and community through character development, academic goal setting and leadership. The program is grounded in Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and pairs with quality tools and educational best practices.

“Our goal is to grow strong, well-rounded citizens able to lead and contribute to their communities,” said Holly Hughes, assistant superintendent of elementary education. “The Leader In Me creates tangible pathways for that success.”

Campuses already successfully incorporating the program’s tenets into their school culture are Armand Bayou Elementary, Bay Elementary, Falcon Pass Elementary, McWhirter Elementary, Space Center Intermediate and Whitcomb Elementary. At the conclusion of the last school year, Falcon Pass Elementary achieved Lighthouse Certification, a highly-regarded standard and evidence that the school has produced outstanding results in student outcomes by implementing the process with fidelity and excellence. The certification typically occurs four to five years into program implementation, however, Falcon Pass Elementary earned the designation after only its third year.

In October 2018, Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital pledged $500,000 to help the District expand the program to a greater number of campuses. The students and staff of Brookwood, Campbell, Landolt, Clear Lake Intermediate and Clear View are all beneficiaries of the Houston Methodist Visionary Partner donation.

The program at Stewart Elementary is primarily underwritten by the City of Kemah with additional support from the City of Clear Lake Shores.

“We are immensely fortunate to be building relationships with education-focused community partners who are helping fund this implementation,” said Clear View High School Principal Monica Speaks. “Their belief in and backing of what we are doing is developing one future leader at a time,” she said.

The District is also grateful to the Clear Creek Education Foundation (CCEF) for the organization’s funding support as well as their work to identify additional partners for deeper expansion of The Leader In Me program. The CCEF, as well as the local PTA organizations, invested in the launch of the first two leadership-building programs at Falcon Pass Elementary and Armand Bayou Elementary.
