Reopening Design Team
In the spring, the District established a committee, the Reopening Design Team, that is hard at work preparing for a successful 20-21 school year. This group of leaders from departments and all campus levels are working in conjunction with the district’s senior and campus leadership to develop plans for maintaining continuity of instruction for students, maintaining operations of Klein ISD, and prioritizing the health and safety of students and staff.
As part of the design process, this team will review all feedback from our community, staff, students, and families. Many thanks to the over 20,000 participants who took the recent Roadmap to Reopening Klein ISD Survey. Your feedback is important to us as we plan for the upcoming school year.
2020-2021 School Hours Update
The previously approved and published 2020-21 school calendar will remain in effect, including the first day of classes beginning on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.
The number of minutes of instruction per school day is being increased up to 15 minutes per day in order to provide additional academic support to students in light of the COVID-19 emergency response and to prepare for any potential future school closures due to the pandemic or inclement weather in the 20-21 school year. The school hours for students are as follows:
- Elementary: 8:00 A.M. – 3:30 P.M.
- Intermediate: 8:50 A.M. – 4:20 P.M.
- High School: 7:15 A.M. – 2:46 P.M.
Looking back on last year video
As we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, it’s important to look back and remember where we’ve been and what we’ve accomplished together. We will always achieve more when we work together.
