The Klein ISD board of trustees unanimously voted to extend Superintendent Jenny McGown’s contract term to 2025 during a Jan. 14 board meeting.
During the meeting, Board President Doug James reflected on McGown’s work since her appointment to the position in June 2019.
“I'm just thrilled to death ... to congratulate you for your contract extension and the work you've done,” James said. “We're just excited about what's to come; you've already set the mark pretty high.”
Board Secretary Chris Todd also expressed gratitude for McGown and said he looked forward to her work with the district in the future.
“I'm just reminded tonight how grateful we are for you,” Todd said. “I'm really excited about the opportunity ... to be able to share some of the great work that's happening in the next six months with the community.”
McGown serves as KISD’s first female superintendent since its establishment in 1938, as previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper.
“It truly is an honor to serve,” she said. “It's a joy to be able to serve in a place that I love to call home professionally but also that I'm very grateful to call home personally; that my own children go to our [school] systems to benefit from the hard work of people in Klein ISD every single day. It's like a dream come true.”
