During the latter part of the spring semester, the district will host two Futures Conferences designed to inform the community about the guiding principles outlined during the visioning process. In the fall semester of the 2014-15 school year, a bond steering committee will study all material and data, prioritize the district needs and lay out a plan for a 2015 bond referendum.
Cain anticipates placing an item on the January 2015 agenda for the Board of Trustees to consider calling a bond referendum for May 2015. The superintendent anticipates that a 2015 bond plan could include one elementary, one intermediate and partial funding for High School #5. In addition, he anticipates funding needs for technology, safety and security, buses, campus repairs and renovations and future school sites.
Cain indicated that Klein ISD has successfully passed nine bond elections since 1971 to build all the Klein ISD schools and facilities, keep the buildings and equipment repaired and renovated, and purchase land, buses, technology equipment and security equipment.
“The Klein ISD community understands the importance of good schools; that is one of the main reasons families move to our area,” stated Cain. “We appreciate our community for supporting the district by approving bonds to ensure that students in the Klein ISD continue to receive a quality education in safe and suitable facilities.”
