In Texas--specifically in the greater Houston area--Clear Creek Independent School District is a destination district. Families with young children seek to move into the Clear Creek ISD district boundaries when looking for housing in the area. State accountability requirements, coupled with slow changes in student demographics, have caused Clear Creek ISD administrators to look for new ways to help school leaders stay at the top. No longer can administrators and teachers rest on the laurels of past successes and continue to see high levels of student learning and achievement. Clear Creek Independent School District leaders launched 12 communities of practice, presented in this article, for principals tightly bound by a shared problem of practice. The success experienced by school and department leaders has deepened the belief among district leadership that this is the right path for all improvement efforts.
