  • **New Changes: January 2019**

    This message was sent to parents of students in grades 2-12, on behalf of the FBISD Academic Affairs Department and Department of School Leadership. Please see information below regarding a change to grading guidelines for the spring semester of 2019, applicable for grades 2-12.

      

    Dear FBISD Parents and Guardians,

      

    This letter is to inform you of a change to FBISD’s grading guidelines for the 2019 spring semester, which will affect the number of grades that your student will receive for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year. After careful consideration and discussions with various stakeholders, Fort Bend ISD will reduce the amount of daily grades that will be required for the third and fourth- nine week grading periods. This change is prompted by a desire to ensure a manageable number of grades while allowing both students and teachers time for feedback within the learning process. The reduction in grades will reduce the workload for both students and teachers, while keeping the focus on instruction. The following guidelines will be in effect for the spring of 2019.

    Note: Please note that the minimum number of grades is reflective of each subject area. Daily grades will continue to count as 50 percent of a student’s grading period average, with major grades accounting for the other 50 percent of a student’s grading period average. This is not changing.
