The district was named for Adam Klein who led many German immigrants into the area in 1849. Originally named Rural High School District No. 1 in July 1928, it became known as the Klein Independent School District in February 1938. By Board Policy, all high schools will include the name 'Klein' as the first word.
In 1971, Dr. Donald Richard Collins became the district's superintendent, a position he served until his retirement in 2000. Under his tenure, the number of schools in the district rose from 6 to over 30. It was largely under his influence that the district adopted and continued the policy of naming the schools after early immigrants to the area. These families were largely German in ancestry, and in many cases were related to the Klein family. In 2001, Klein Collins High School was named in his honor.
