KLEIN, TX – All Klein ISD schools received overall ratings of either Exemplary or Recognized for community and student engagement as set forth under House Bill 5.
House Bill 5, which was passed last year, requires all Texas school districts to evaluate their overall district performance and the performance of each campus in regard to community and student engagement.
Each Klein ISD campus was evaluated for community and parent involvement, wellness and physical education, 21st century workforce development, second language acquisition programs, dropout prevention strategies, the digital learning environment, programs for gifted and talented students, fine arts, and overall performance.
Of the 44 Klein ISD campuses evaluated, all were in compliance for state regulations with the majority receiving exemplary scores. Campuses which received an overall exemplary rating had to demonstrate high levels of achievement in most of the evaluation categories. To view district and campus results, click here
On-time graduation rates for the Klein ISD Class of 2013 rose to 91.9 percent last year.
The rate represents a 1.2 percent gain over the Class of 2012 and the fourth year in a row the district has seen an increase in its graduation rate. The state classifies graduating “on-time” as earning a high school diploma or equivalent within 4 years of entering the ninth grade.
Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jim Cain issued the following statement on the latest on-time high school graduation rates released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
“The Klein ISD continues to be a leader in education for the state and country by consistently graduating seniors on time that are ready for college or career,” Dr. Cain said. “Students from the Class of 2013 should be proud of their accomplishments, as well as all the teachers, support staff and administrators who put in the many hours needed to make this possible.”
On-time graduation rates across the state rose to 88 percent for the Class of 2013. The state graduation rate for the Class of 2013 is 0.3 percentage points higher than the previous record set by the Class of 2012 and marks the sixth consecutive year the rate has increased at the state level.
The latest graduation figures are among the findings highlighted in the Texas Education Agency’s report, Secondary School Completion and Dropouts in Texas Public Schools, 2012-13.
