School Boundary Oversight Committee
The SBOC is comprised of four representatives (parents and community members) from each high school feeder pattern. The purpose of the committee is to review student enrollment projections and provide input regarding school boundary recommendations. The SBOC will also be involved with gaining community input on any proposed school boundary recommendations by holding public hearings in any areas that could be affected.

Final Report Presentation to the Board and Board Action
Committee membership will align with the following guidelines:
- Four representatives from each high school feeder pattern.
Note: For the inaugural SBOC, to support balanced membership, the committee will be composed of three parents and one community member from each high school feeder pattern. Parent members will be equally divided between parents of elementary students, middle school students, and high school students in the District. In subsequent years, staff will make every effort to fill vacant positions with level appropriate members to maintain equal division of membership between elementary, middle, and high schools.
Note: Board Leadership Academy graduates will receive preference in appointment.
- District employees will not be eligible for membership; however, the administration may invite staff members to attend meetings of the SBOC to serve in an advisory capacity.
- Students in the Fort Bend ISD Student Leadership Programs (Leadership 101, Leadership 102, VOICES) can also be invited to observe and serve as a resource for the committee.
- To maintain continuity, members will serve overlapping, two-year terms with a maximum length of service of three consecutive terms. At the end of each term, until three consecutive terms have been served, SBOC members will have the option to resign or reapply.
Note: To allow for overlapping years, beginning with the 2019 term, half of the committee will be permitted to serve a one-year term with the other half serving a two-year term. All subsequent terms will be two years in length.
When the SBOC was established, staff hosted the first SBOC meeting in November 2019. During that initial meeting, per Policy FC(Local), the SBOC elected a chairperson, vice chairperson, and a recording secretary.
Parents and community members interested in being considered to serve on the SBOC may apply for consideration by submitting the SBOC Application during the application window.
Note: The inaugural year's membership roster was approved in October 2019. To ensure membership continues to align with the membership guidelines, current SBOC members will need to reapply at the end of their term if they are interested in being considered to serve.
