Playground Replacement Program in Full Swing Across Clear Creek ISD
Posted on 08/02/2017
playgroundsBy August 13, the first phase of new playground installations will be complete in Clear Creek ISD.

That means 11 campuses from across the District will have new playground equipment for students to use by the start of the new school year.

Those campuses include: Armand Bayou Elementary, Clear Lake City Elementary, Falcon Pass Elementary, Hyde Elementary, Landolt Elementary, North Pointe Elementary, Parr Elementary, Ross Elementary, Ward Elementary, Wedgewood Elementary and Whitcomb Elementary.

Growing playground safety concerns led the District to hire a certified playground safety inspector to review each campus’ playground. What was found was the need for both repairs and new replacement playgrounds throughout CCISD.

Through a playground replacement and repair program, over the next several years, all of the District’s playgrounds will be brought up to the same standards, which have been set by a district playground committee. Those standards include making all playgrounds ADA accessible, adding swings, slides, and other engaging, interactive play equipment.

Work will continue during the school year, so precautions are in place to minimize impact on campus activities and maintain a safe environment for students.

Replacing and improving Clear Creek ISD’s playgrounds is just a small portion of the $20.8 million in safety improvements district officials are planning to make since voters approved the $487 million bond in May 2017.
