Klein ISD board of trustees reallocates funds to support growth
Trustees for the Klein Independent School District agreed to reallocate $67 million from the 2008 bond program to stave off a bond referendum until 2016.
The bond money was meant to build another high school, but trustees decided the bond election in a difficult economy was not prudent.
The estimated $131 million high school would have been the fifth in the district to help accommodate a growth in projected enrollment, but the growth rate has slowed. The school is now planned for 2019-2020.
Instead of building a new school, trustees will use the bond money to remediate a mold problem in four elementary campuses, construction of two elementary schools in Rayford or Bernshausen and the reconstruction of Klein High School.
