Klein ISD Transportation Department 1 of 7 in Texas to Receive Award for Safety

Klein ISD Transportation Department 1 of 7 in Texas to Receive Award for Safety

Congratulations to the Klein ISD Transportation team! The District’s magnificent Transportation team has been named a 2022 Texas Association of School Boards Risk Management Fund Excellence Award recipient. 

Klein ISD Transportation is one of seven school district departments recognized for their innovative and excellent risk management initiatives. 

“Our outstanding transportation team goes the extra mile daily to ensure the safety of every student in our care,” Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “We are so grateful for the work that they do not only to safely transport thousands of students to and from school daily but also the faithful commitment they demonstrate through their work. Congratulations to this incredible and very important team in our Klein Family!”

The TASB Risk Management Fund is a collaborative effort among over 1,000 public school districts, community colleges, education service centers, and other education entities to share resources for heightening safety. 

“We are always impressed by the creative solutions and initiatives Fund members develop to address the challenges in their school districts,” Fund Chair and Longview ISD trustee Ted Beard said. “By honoring these success stories, we hope to encourage other districts to perhaps use some of these ideas in their own organizations.” 

“There will always be some extraordinary people in our lives of whom we are proud, but I couldn’t be more pleased with Joe Terpestra and Laura Villanueva for all their hard work to make Klein ISD transportation the best it can be,” Director of Transportation John Fergerson said. 

We are so grateful for our Klein ISD Transportation Team, and we are so proud of their accomplishment. Thank you for all that you do for every student, every day!
