Additional Support: Fort Bend ISD Learning Centers

  • Schools as Learning Centers

    In order to support student’s online learning success, Fort Bend ISD has developed a conceptual framework for Learning Centers that will help serve students with unique needs, with priority given to staff, first responders, essential medical workers and active US Military. The need for internet connectivity during the instructional day and the need for adult supervision during the instructional day will also be factored in determining placement to the centers.

    To staff these centers, Fort Bend ISD plans to hire and redirect non-instructional staff to monitor students. FBISD will strategically locate these centers to serve the needs of staff and the community.

    FBISD will also continue to offer Extended Learning prior to the start and end of the school day at the Learning Center sites for those families who are interested in participating.
