Clear Creek Independent School District students will return to school next year under new campus boundary maps.

The district’s board of trustees in February gave final approval to an advisory committee’s revised recommendations, which would affect about 1,000 students, officials have said.

The board approved the measure with a unanimous vote.

“We are fortunate to have 44 wonderful schools, so wherever a child is zoned to attend, he or she will be greeted with exceptional learning experiences and highly qualified teachers,” President Page Rander said.

The committee has been working on new boundary maps for all of the district’s schools since 2018, in large part because of Florence Campbell Elementary School’s August opening. Construction of Florence Campbell Elementary School, the 27th elementary school in the district, is one of many projects funded through a $487 million bond voters approved in 2017, officials said.

More than 580 parents applied to be on the committee, of which 32 were ultimately selected, district officials said.

The approved boundaries are the district’s first new ones in six years. The committee also used the opportunity to address other district issues, such as overcrowding at Clear Springs and Clear Falls high schools, among others, said Sara Holder, the committee’s chairwoman, in a previous interview with The Daily News.

In response to outcry from district parents, the committee did revise some of its initial recommendations, reducing the number of students affected, and slimming the number of intermediate school boundaries that would change to just League City and Clear Creek intermediate campuses, officials said.
