Boosting the STEAM initiative, Klein ISD has been selected among 23 school districts to take part in the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium (THPSC).

“The school districts selected to participate in the consortium are already known for their innovative work and are looked to by many as educational leaders,” Texas Commissioner of Education Michael L. Williams said. “This exciting project will help the Governor, legislative leaders and the Texas Education Agency craft a sound, well-thought out plan to move all Texas schools to the next performance level.”

The THPSC’s main goals range from engaging students in digital learning, using varied assessments to keep track of student learning, focus learning standards and relying on local control. The district’s specific goals include applying digital and online learning and further promoting the STEAM movement.
