Dr. Greg Smith became the Clear Creek ISD superintendent of schools in January 2008. He was named the Superintendent of the Year by the Texas Association of School Boards in 2012, the top administrator by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association, Superintendent of the Year for the Texas PTA, and the Galveston County Daily News Community Champion in 2013.
Smith has led CCISD and its 5,000 employees on a journey to transform education in the 21st century. Under his leadership, student performance has increased on all state indicators as well on college entrance exams. Today, the district is considered one of the largest high-performing school districts in Texas.

In 2014, CCISD was a finalist for the H-E-B Excellence in Education Award and TASA Honor Board Award. In 2013, voters in the district overwhelmingly approved a $367 million school construction bond that led to the 1:1 tablet initiative known as Latitude 2 Learn.
Smith earned his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Oakland University, master’s degree in education administration from University of Houston Clear Lake, and his doctorate in education administration from Texas A&M University.
