Update #9 – Klein ISD COVID-19

Update #9 – Klein ISD COVID-19

Klein ISD will extend the closure of schools and suspend normal operations through April 10, 2020. This suspension of normal school operations, taken in conjunction with surrounding districts, is in support of the Nation’s effort to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We know these issues are on the hearts and minds of our entire Klein ISD family and community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. The President has publicly shared that the community should not gather in groups larger than 10 people. The District will remain flexible as leaders plan for long-term delivery of instruction and continue to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation.  

In this update, you’ll find additional information regarding:

  • Extended learning plans
  • Updates on standardized testing 
  • Klein ISD employee communication
  • How you can help
  • A message from Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown
  • Klein ISD COVID-19 Update 10 will be shared by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17

Extended learning plans

Klein ISD has been preparing a plan for long-term delivery of instruction and continues to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation. We will remain flexible as we continue to respond and adapt to ensure student learning. Extended learning opportunities for the week of March 16-20 are already available to families on https://kleinisd.net/familynet.

Updates on standardized testing

Governor Greg Abbott today announced that he has waived the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) testing requirements for the 2019-2020 school year. We are continuing to follow updates from the College Board considering ACT, SAT, and AP testing.

Klein ISD employee communication

Klein ISD employees should expect an employee email update by 9 p.m. tonight, March 16.

How you can help

We are fortunate to live in a caring community with many people who want to help support our schools in this time of need. While we may have volunteer or service opportunities for churches, businesses, and other community groups to help in the future, at this time, we are asking you to help by following the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control.

A message from Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown

We know this is a time of great stress. Although our district will operate differently during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are in this together for our community. Thank you for your continued patience, sacrifice, and support. 

Please continue to monitor your email and visit the District website and social media channels for regular updates. The health and safety of our Klein ISD students, employees, and community is always our priority, and we will continue to work together to take good care of one another.

Klein ISD COVID-19 Update 10 will be shared by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
