CCISD board approves long range compensation plan

Published 04/08/2013


LEAGUE CITY, Texas -- The Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) is committed to recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers and staff. On March 25, the Clear Creek Independent School District approved a three percent raise for staff.

“This increase is well-deserved as our teachers and staff work tirelessly to ensure our children are prepared for their future,” said Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. “Teachers and staff did receive a one-time, three percent payment this year. This move by the school board will sustain the raise for next year.”

Additionally, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved to increase the District’s contribution to employee health care from $225 per month to $265 per month. TRS-Active Care, the health insurance that is used by 90% of school districts in Texas, has raised its premiums rates for the second year in a row. This increase in employer contribution will help offset the impact on CCISD teachers, staff and their families.

In October 2012, the Clear Creek Independent School District Board of Trustees set out a specific goal for the superintendent to develop and implement a long-range compensation plan. The superintendent outlined the plan on March 5.

In total, Clear Creek ISD has reduced $12.8 million in expenditures over two years and it has been successful in rolling forward general funds not used in the prior year. The three percent raise would cost $6 million.
