Six Clear Creek ISD Campuses Named Texas Schools of Character
News Release
Thursday, January 31, 2019

League City, Texas – The Clear Creek Independent School District is pleased to announce that Character.org, a national advocate and leader for character, named six elementary schools as 2019 Texas Schools of Character.

The program recognized Bauerschlag Elementary, McWhirter Elementary, Ross Elementary, Stewart Elementary, Weber Elementary and Whitcomb Elementary as campuses that have demonstrated their use of character development to drive a positive impact on academics, student behavior and school climate. They now join the growing list of schools within Clear Creek ISD who have earned this distinction.

“The teachers and students have dedicated each day to becoming leaders of character, so we are extremely honored to be recognized as a State School of Character,” said Dr. Britani Moses, Stewart Elementary principal. “Our six core values within CCISD of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship help drive what we do within our school and translate through this accolade.”

The Schools of Character application process is an opportunity for schools and districts to receive thoughtful feedback for growth and excellence in the area of character development through Character.org’s 11 Principles of Character framework. It is also a method of recognizing exemplary schools and districts in the nation.

"We are pleased to announce the 2019 State Schools and Districts of Character today," said Doug Karr, Character.org’s President & CEO. "These schools’ representatives, including educators, parents and students, are working together to create stronger communities focused on character. We are honored to validate their efforts and continue coaching them along their journeys.”

These six schools will now be considered for Character.org’s highest distinction, National Schools of Character. The 2019 National Schools of Character will be announced in May 2019. Character.org will honor these schools and districts at the 2019 National Forum to be held Oct 24-27, 2019 in Washington, DC.
