Klein community members may notice more than just local companies’ advertisements at football games and school events. Last week, Klein ISD signed a deal with a national company promising to help the district gain ad revenue from Fortune 500 companies.
Klein ISD will become the first Houston-area district to sign with Education Funding Partners, a Colorado-based benefit business.
The district struck the deal to make up for last year’s $16 million state budget cut with alternative revenue sources, said Klein ISD Superintendent Jim Cain in a statement.
“Through our partnership with Education Funding Partners, we will have the opportunity to link with leading corporations who share our vision and are dedicated to ensuring a high quality education for America’s future workforce,” Cain added.
