In Klein ISD, our vision is that every student enters with a promise and exits with a purpose. We do this by ensuring every student, from elementary through high school, has a clear path to success. EVERY student in Klein ISD has the opportunity to explore a wide variety of pathways like Advanced Nursing, Global Business, Geospatial Engineering, Automotive Technology, and the list goes on and on!
These pathways prepare students for a career or college and offer real financial savings for families! For example, students currently enrolled in the Geospatial Engineering and Land Surveying pathway will have earned an Associate of Arts degree from the Lone Star Community College system by the time they graduate high school. Out of all the credits they’ve earned, 45 hours will transfer towards a college degree. That means these families will have saved nearly $3,000. The savings are even higher when compared to what these same courses would cost at a four-year university after high school!

Switching gears, October was school bus safety month. However, this is really a year-round priority for us. In Klein ISD, we make every effort to keep students safe not only on campus but also to and from school on our busses. Throughout October we shared safety tips as you ride on or share the road with school buses. To learn or refresh your memory about rules of the road when encountering a school bus, search the Twitter hashtag, #BeAwareDriveLikeYouCare.
