Clear Creek Board of Education briefs


The Clear Creek Board of Education took the time to recognize paraprofessionals at its Sept. 27 meeting. Board members explained that these staff members work in classrooms, in individual settings, large and small group settings, and are incorporated in all aspects of schools. 

“Talk about a group that is adaptable and flexible,” commented one board member. 

The board of education appointed Kerry Ann McHugh as the official board secretary at the Sept. 27 business meeting. McHugh had formerly been serving as the interim secretary. 

The board discussed the remaining 30% of space at Building 103 which will not be occupied by the grade school. Members discussed pros and cons of different users in the space, but made no decisions yet. 

The board emphasized that the bond that makes the space at Building 103 possible only pays for the elementary school and the abatement of the whole building. Any users that occupy the remaining space would need to be financially able to rent the space. 

The board also brought back the community service graduation requirement for the Clear Creek school district. The requirement was waived during the height of the pandemic and now will be phased back in. Previously, 40 hours of community service were required upon graduation. Starting this year the district will require 10 hours, then 20 next year, until the district gets back to the 40-hour expectation in a few years.
