District leaders, staff and the Board of Directors wish to thank every voter who participated in supporting the bond referendum.  Interim Superintendent Joseph Brown said, “The super majority YES vote for a new elementary school, vocational center, and expansions of the high school and middle school fine arts facilities is a solid indicator of the support our community has for the future educational facilities for our students. Thanks for your continued support for Clear Creek Amana schools

As the District moves forward to develop the plans, timelines and expected completion of bond-related projects, that information will be shared regularly through the District’s web site and other communication outlets.
