H-E-B has named Klein ISD a statewide finalist - only one of five large districts - in the company’s annual Excellence in Education Awards program.

Klein ISD received finalist distinction in the program’s large school district category encompassing those with 10,000 or more students enrolled. Klein ISD previously earned the same distinction in 2019 and in 2022.

"I am grateful that Klein ISD has been recognized for our unwavering commitment to student achievement, our innovative pathways and programs, exceptional fiscal management, and robust family engagement. This accolade is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our remarkable teachers, our diligent support staff, supportive families, and most importantly, our extraordinary students,” Superintendent Jenny McGown said. ”Together, we have fostered an environment of educational excellence and community involvement, and I am truly grateful for the collaborative efforts that have led us to this moment of celebration." 

Being named a finalist is yet another indicator of Klein ISD’s continued tradition of excellence and innovation in academics, the arts, and athletics, including;
- Remapping our strategic priorities to serve our students today and in the future
- Providing teachers with leadership opportunities to grow their craft
- Celebrating Nitsch Elementary remarkable student academic growth
- Building an innovative environment, the Flex School, for students to attend while their assigned schools undergo modernization and comprehensive renovations thanks to the 2022 Bond

Winners will be announced at the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards ceremony later this semester.
