    In August 2018, FBISD opened the doors of the Ridgemont Early Literacy Center(ELC) that currently serves PreK-1st grade children in the Willowridge High School feeder pattern. The Ridgemont Early Literacy Center emphasizes the development of emergent literacy across subjects and grade levels. The center's program model follows an extended school year, a co-teaching model at all grade levels, with partnerships with Ibna Sina community Clinics and Fueling Brains to support all learners' needs.

    Based on the impressive academic gains obtained at the Ridgemont ELC, data indicated an expansion of this model would be beneficial within additional school feeder patterns. A needs assessment utilizing various student achievement data points denoted the best fit for the new ELC is within the Marshall High School feeder pattern. Therefore, FBISD is preparing to open a second ELC in Hunters Glen in August 2021. The Hunters Glen Early Literacy Center will serve the Hunters Glen and Glover elementary families.
