Superintendent's Message

Dear Clear Creek Community,


As we approach the end of another school year, it’s a moment of reflection and gratitude for all that we have achieved together. The past months have been filled with energy, determination, and a shared commitment to excellence, resulting in a year of tremendous accomplishment. Your unwavering support and active participation in our initiatives have been instrumental in our success.


One of our proudest achievements has been completing several significant construction projects. Among these, the inauguration of our new transportation maintenance center stands as a testament to our dedication to enhancing the infrastructure that supports our educational mission. Additionally, the renovation of Carlson Elementary showcases our commitment to providing modern and welcoming learning environments for our students while preserving the past history of our district.


Our collective efforts extended beyond individual projects, with numerous bond initiatives realized across our schools. These initiatives have not only enhanced our facilities but have also enriched the educational experience for every student within our district.


As we prepare for the future, it brings me great pleasure to announce the addition of key members to our leadership team. We eagerly welcome Superintendent Tom Meyer, who will officially join our district on July 1st. With his wealth of experience and visionary leadership, I am confident that Superintendent Meyer will not only continue our legacy of success but also lead us to new horizons of achievement.


Furthermore, we are thrilled to introduce new faces to our finance, high school principal, and maintenance leadership positions. Each of these individuals brings unique talents and perspectives that will enrich our team and serve our district with distinction. Look for more on their expertise as they join the organization.


As I reflect on the past year, I am grateful for the experiences and relationships we have shared with our communities, students, and staff. The bonds forged within Clear Creek are not just professional but profoundly personal and enduring. This district will forever hold a special place in my heart as an educator, as together, we have learned, grown, and achieved so much in such a short time.  I will continue to support the district in transition and will be a proud observer of the successes as I move back to Oregon.


As we look ahead to the future, let us carry forward the spirit of collaboration, innovation, and dedication that defines Clear Creek. Together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.

With heartfelt appreciation,

Mike Gass
Interim Superintendent
