CASE for Gifted Children is pleased to donate $4000.00 to CCISD's Advanced Academics and GT Department to provide teacher scholarships for the Texas Association of Gifted and Talented Conference in Houston.

We are confident that each teacher who attends this professional conference will increase his or her understanding of gifted children and learn new strategies which can then be shared with fellow teachers.

What is CASE?

CASE© was formed by a group of parents who met at a Texas Association for Gifted and Talented (TAGT) conference held in Houston back in the summer of 1994. The members shared a common vision... to provide parents and supporters of gifted education within the Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) with an organized support group that would work with the educators and administration at the local and state levels to create a better understanding by all of the academic, social, and emotional needs of the gifted and to support the development of programs and educational opportunities within the district.

Our service includes:

  • Providing numerous programs and guest speakers from the district, region and state levels who have shared their knowledge and expertise in meeting the educational, social, and emotional needs of the gifted.
  • Helping to support the Webster Academy Visions in Education (WAVE) Program at WAVE North -Westbrook Intermediate School and WAVE SOUTH -League City Intermediate School.
  • Serving on the District Educational Improvement Council, various Campus Instructional Improvement Councils, the GT Advisory Council and other district level committees and subgroups to ensure that the needs of all students are met.
  • Appearing before the Board of Trustees on behalf of gifted children - our most recent issues addressed include transportation continuance for WAVE and Seabrook Science Magnet, and the WAVE entrance requirements.
  • Providing a network for parents to share valuable insights and experiences with others who share the role in raising gifted children.
  • Sharing learning and support through our affiliate with the Texas Association for Gifted and Talented (TAGT).
  • Providing educator scholarships to CCISD to keep our teachers on the cutting edge of gifted education.
