In Clear Creek ISD Special Services, each student discovers and develops his or her unique talents and interests while realizing personal success and positively impacting their world.
The mission of the Clear Creek ISD Department of Special Services, the innovative leader in inclusive education, is to ensure that each student discovers and develops his or her unique talents and interests while realizing personal success and positively impacting their world through a new system distinguished by shared ownership, personalized learning, person-centered planning, enhanced continuum of supports and extraordinary educational experiences.
- Each student sustains a fulfilled life actualizing his or her personal talents and interests.
- Each student optimizes his or her potential by continuously setting and achieving individual learning goals.
- Each student actively enriches and advances his or her community and greater society.

Each student has access to an appropriate learning environment and an opportunity for education with non-disabled students to the maximum extent appropriate at his or her zoned school or at a site as close as possible to his or her neighborhood school.
