The Klein ISD board of trustees approved its 2021-22 calendar at its regular Jan. 12 meeting.
The board selected Option A, which puts the first day of school on Aug. 18 and the last day of school on May 27, before Memorial Day. It includes 14 staff development days and gives families a week off for Thanksgiving and spring break and two weeks off for the winter break.
The board had previously sought community input for the calendar option. Option B had the first day of school on Aug. 23 and the last day of school on June 2, after Memorial Day.
The board also named two buildings after major figures in the district’s history. The Klein ISD Disciplinary Alternative Education Program was renamed to the K.E. Kaufman Alternative Education Center in the honor of educator and inaugural DAEP Director Kim Kaufman. The Klein ISD Central Office building has been renamed to the Frank A. Lemmon Administration Building in honor of retired educator Frank Lemmon. Kaufman’s son and Lemmon accepted the honors in person.
