    Community members and parents invited to share feedback and participate in roundtable discussions

    The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees will once again come to a school near you as part of the 2017 – 18 Listening and Literacy Tours. The events will give the Board an opportunity to hear from parents, community members and other stakeholders. 

    Last year, the Board held four Listening Tours throughout the District. This year, the Board is excited to introduce Literacy Tours, which will take place at elementary schools and help promote the importance of reading. Starting at 5 p.m., Board members will read to students, talk to them and answer their questions. If time permits, Board members will also engage with parents and community members afterward. At the conclusion, attendees are invited to stay for the Board’s monthly workshop, which begins at 6 p.m.

    The Listening Tours will consist of roundtable discussions, which begin at 5 p.m. and provide opportunities for parents, staff and community members to ask questions directly to FBISD Board members and District leaders. Attendees are invited to stay for the Board’s monthly workshop, which begins at 6 p.m.
