CCISD renews deal with local college Up to seven Clear Creek ISD students will soon have a chance to participate in the College of the Mainland’s Collegiate High School, which allows high school students to earn a college degree at the same time as their high school diploma. The overview On Oct. 23, the CCISD board of trustees renewed a partnership with the college. Through the Collegiate High School program, CCISD students can enroll as full- time college students at the College of the Mainland but still remain in their local high school, according to the district’s website. The overall outcome can result in a stu- dent obtaining both a high school diploma and an associate degree, according to the district’s website.

CCISD to oer ‘personal skills’ class to students Sixth graders in Clear Creek ISD will have a new class to take after the board of trustees approved this year’s new secondary courses on Oct. 23. Two-minute impact CCISD ocials each year consider new second- ary courses to add to the district’s class catalog. With no new legislative requirements this year, the district considered just one course, according to district documents. The course is titled “Launch” and is part of the district’s Vision 2030, said Susan Silva, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning for the district. It will focus on tools and habits for “personal eectiveness,” such as: • Time management

“I know we’ve implemented this [on other campuses], and it’s been

very successful, so I am very excited to be able to oer it to all our sixth-grade students.” JESSICA CEJKA, CCISD BOARD TRUSTEE

• Prioritizing tasks Half of the yearlong course will focus on the seven habits of highly eective teens, which was popularized by author Sean Covey. The second half will focus on careers and future interests. What else? This year saw fewer courses recommended than others, Silva said. Starting last year, district ocials opted to streamline some of their recom- mendations due to budget constraints.
