Since the 2004 bond election, Klein, a fast growth school district in Spring Texas, has experienced 16% growth. And the district does not see the growth stopping. As they are projecting the growth to continue for the next 10 years at a rate of 4% a year. That means by 2016, Klein school district is expected to grow by over 17,600 students.
Where is all this growth coming from? Since the last bond election in 2004, approximately 98 new subdivisions and new sections in existing subdivisions have been built in the Klein school district. Since all of the previous bond funds have been spent or designated for current projects, the district has started exploring a new bond election.
A steering committee comprised of 110 members of the community, parents, teachers, students, and other district personnel have been meeting monthly since September 2007. In March of 2008, they will present thier recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
What does this mean to the homeowners who live in the Klein school district in Spring Texas? If the bond passes, a real estate tax increase is in our near future. How much? At this point it is to early to tell. But early projections are for $0.20 per every $100 assessed value to be issued in over the next four years.
Hopefully, the steering committee will be fiduciary responsible and develop a plan that will support our children’s education and yet be kind to our pocket books.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
