Fort Bend ISD is Texas’ eighth largest district with approximately 75,000 students and is one of the most diverse districts in the nation. FBISD currently has 78 campuses: 11 high schools, 14 middle schools, 50 elementary campuses and three unique program campuses to address the academic and vocational interests of students.
Fort Bend ISD received a 2017 District accountability rating of Met Standard, and 71 of 72 rated campuses received a Met Standard rating based on overall student achievement, progress, closing the gaps in performance of identified student groups and post-secondary readiness. Under the state’s accountability system based on the STAAR test, campuses and districts receive either Met Standard or Improvement Required ratings. FBISD campuses also earned a total of 108 distinctions – 41 at the high school level, 42 at the middle school level, and 59 at the elementary school level – for high student performance compared to their 40 TEA-selected peer campuses.
Annually, upon receiving the district STAAR accountability data, the Academic Affairs team analyzes the data for patterns and trends that indicate where we have need to leverage performance for growth and improvement. However, STAAR data is only one form of data utilized. The team also analyzes TELPAS, PBMAS, Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, Attendance, Graduation Rate, Dropout Rate, Special Programs data, ACT, SAT, TSI, Discipline and other assessment, accountability, enrollment, and other data to determine where we can best impact overall performance. Furthermore, we seek to narrow the number of Performance Objectives, to a meaningful number of targets which fulfill our compliance indicators and keep our efforts focused on where we can make the greatest growth. As a result of reviewing the 2016-17 data, the Academic Affairs team, Academic Advisory Council, and Executive Team have concluded there are several areas of performance that can be impacted positively by setting performance objectives which are laser focused on improving the problem areas.
