After multiple campuses in Clear Creek ISD saw damage to their outdoor air units due to the freeze in January, the district’s board approved funds to replace some of the heating and cooling coils at its Feb. 12 workshop.

The gist

After the winter freeze in January occurred, causing Clear Creek ISD to close school on Jan. 16, multiple coils on schools’ heating, ventilation and air conditioning units became damaged at multiple campuses, according to district agenda documents.

All the coils on those units are being replaced, as most have aged, causing the coils to thin out and create more difficult repairs to the entire air unit, said Paul Miller, assistant superintendent of support services.

Quote of note

“The replacement of the coil will extend the life of those units significantly,” Miller said at the meeting. “The rest of the unit, generally, would be something that would last longer.”

Also on the agenda

CCISD’s community accountability report showed that CCISD students outperformed state and global averages on the SAT, or the Scholastic Achievement Test, according to district documents.
