Nearly 60% of voters showed their support for two of the four Klein ISD bond propositions on the May 7 ballot, providing nearly $900 million for district facilities, safety and security upgrades, and classroom technology, among other projects.

However propositions C and D, which would have funded a new events center as well as a second stadium and renovations to Klein Memorial Stadium, respectively, failed to pass.

“We are very grateful for the support we’ve received from our community during this election,” KISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said in a news release statement. “The 2022 bond is the largest bond to pass in the history of our school district, and we are very excited to see our Klein ISD students, staff and community benefit for many generations to come.”

With 100% of Harris County voting centers reporting results May 8, propositions A and B each received exactly 10,718 votes, or around 59% of all votes cast in the election. Nearly 9,700 voters opposed Proposition D, or 53.44% of all votes, while 9,340 voters opposed Proposition C, or 51.61%, according to unofficial results.


The news release states the district will now begin developing construction timelines and project schedules for the approved projects.

“We are thankful for the support of this community-developed bond proposal,” board President Ronnie K. Anderson said in the news release. “We are excited to get to work conservatively managing these bond dollars for much-needed projects that will serve our kids and our community.”

All results are unofficial until canvassed.

Early voting results for the May 7 election show early voter support of Klein ISD's bond propositions A and B, while propositions C and D have narrow margins between those in favor and those opposed.

As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, the KISD board of trustees unanimously approved a recommended proposal for the bond developed in late 2021 by a committee of roughly 100 community members. The $1.1 billion bond package is broken down on the May 7 ballot into four separate propositions.

Proposition A—an $843.8 million general-purpose proposition—aims to address growth and capacity challenges with the construction of Intermediate School No. 11 and classroom additions at Klein Cain and Klein Oak High Schools. The proposition also includes safety and security improvements; the purchase of new school buses; upgraded academic, arts and athletics spaces; and the comprehensive modernization of eight aging campuses.

Meanwhile, Proposition B would allocate $51.5 million for classroom technology; Proposition C would allot $131.3 million to build a district events center; and Proposition D would allot $75.2 million to build a second stadium and renovate Klein Memorial Stadium.

According to the Harris County Elections Administrators Office, Proposition A has received 62.07%, or 7,577 votes in favor; Proposition B has garnered 61.77%, or 7,535 votes in favor; Proposition C has earned 51.37%, or 6,256 votes in favor; and Proposition D has received 49.53%, or 6,030 votes in favor.

All results are unofficial until canvassed.
