Clear Creek Independent School District has received support for a pilot project that will help disadvantaged students affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Rebuild Texas Fund has given Communities in Schools-Bay Area, or CISBA, a grant for $210,150, some of which will be used to fund the Clear Creek ISD Community Partnership Project. The program will support students who were affected by Harvey by giving underserved campuses access to critical resources, according to a press release.
CISBA will work with staff at Clear Lake High School, Space Center Intermediate, and Clear Lake, Falcon Pass and Whitcomb elementary schools to identify campus needs, cultivate partnerships and coordinate services to meet those needs. These schools have a feeder pattern that includes families displaced by Harvey, according to the release.
CISBA is a dropout-prevention program that provides case management services for over 1,200 at-risk students on 16 CCISD and Dickinson ISD campuses. According to the release, some of the grant money will be used to expand CISBA’s services at a new junior high school in DISD.
CISBA’s mission is to support students and empower them to stay in school and achieve in life. The Rebuild Texas Fund supports the recovery of communities affected by Harvey, the release stated.
