General Information

Homework Study Sessions and Tutoring
Krimmel Intermediate School is pleased to offer Homework Study Sessions to students before school by our teachers. This program provides a quiet place in the Cafeteria for students to study, finish their homework, or read quietly daily from 7:45 - 8:40 AM. Teachers also provide tutoring before and after school throughout the week. Please contact your child's teacher for his/her tutoring schedule. 

College-Career Readiness

In Klein ISD the success of our students is bolstered when each child is surrounded by individuals who instill in each of them a desire to pursue life-long learning, and if each person is given information that can help guide that learning. Here you will find specific information and informative links that detail more about how students can prepare for university study and workplace experiences.

Parent Link
Krimmel has implemented the automated calling system for ParentLink Attendance module. The new system will automatically generate phone calls to parents/guardians each school day by 1:10 p.m. if a student is absent from school. You will receive a phone call if you fail to call the Attendance Office to report your child's absence before the cut-off time (12:30 p.m.) on the day of the absence.

NOTE: All calls are made only to the primary phone number listed in our Student Information System. If you would like to update your primary phone number, please contact Robin Wilmes, Krimmel Registrar, at or call (832) 375-7141.

GT Identification Process

The Klein Independent School District uses a two-stage, ongoing process. The identification process collects both qualitative and quantitative data to identify students who exhibit potential and/or perform at levels significantly beyond the norm in areas of superior cognitive ability and/or specific academic achievement. The following are important dates in the GT Identification process.
