The Clear Creek Independent School District Board of Trustees on Monday voted unanimously to approve a memorandum of understanding with the Texas AgriLife Extension Office and the City of League City for the development of a storm water wetland system at the district’s Education Village.
The wetland project would be at the Education Village’s main detention pond, located near Mossman Elementary.
"The development would improve detention pond water quality which leaves the Education Village and enters the Dickinson Bayou Watershed,” Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith said. “The wetland would provide a learning opportunity for students to apply what they learn in the classroom in real world experience. Texas Agrilife would provide design and installation management, City of League City would provide heavy equipment needed, and Clear Creek ISD would provide the land, organize community involvement for planting, and establish on-site educational opportunities for students. “
The school board voted to cancel the election for District 3 on the board of trustees in May. Incumbent Ken Baliker had been opposed by Star Lazarow. However, Lazarow withdrew her name from the May 14 election ballot, leaving Baliker unopposed for re-election. The district will still hold elections for the District 2 and District 4 seats.
The school board voted to approve a memorandum of understanding with San Jacinto College District for operation of the Clear Horizons Early College High School at the college’s South campus. The agreement will continue operation of the early college high school through June 30, 2014.
