Klussmann Honored by City of Houston

Former SBISD Superintendent Duncan Klussmann (center left) was recognized Tuesday, Sept. 15, by the city of Houston for his service to children and the community. District A Council Member (and SBISD alumna) Brenda Stardig and other council members praised Klussmann and his leadership in Spring Branch, recognizing both his accomplishments and SBISD’s reputation in both excellence and innovation.

Klussmann was named permanent superintendent of SBISD in December 2004 after serving several months as interim superintendent. Under his leadership the district passed and executed a $597.1 million bond, rebuilding 14 schools and making improvements district-wide; became part of the SKY Partnership with KIPP and YES Prep charter schools; and established an aggressive, single goal – T-2-4 – that will double the number of SBISD graduates who successfully complete some form of higher education.

He announced his retirement on Oct. 10, 2014, effective Aug. 15, 2015.

With Klussmann and the proclamation in Council Chambers are Stardig and Mayor Pro Tem James Rodriguez.
