Fort Bend ISD is Texas’ seventh largest district with approximately 76,000 students and is one of the most diverse districts in the nation. FBISD currently has 80 campuses: 11 high schools, 15 middle schools, 50 elementary campuses and three unique program campuses to address the academic and vocational interests of students. With more than 11,000 ful-time employees and substitutes, the District is the largest employer in Fort Bend County.
TEA released the new A–F accountability results regarding student performance in the 2017–18 school year, and for many public school districts in Texas, this involves A–F letter grades. However, because Fort Bend ISD is one of more than 100 school districts severely affected by Hurricane Harvey, it received a Not Rated designation.
Additionally, most FBISD campuses earned an overall rating of Met Standard, with the exception of four campuses. Under the Hurricane Harvey Provision, these four campuses received a Not Rated label.

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 2017-18 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.
The Board approved the District Performance Objectives for the 2018-19 school year in the month of December 2018.
