Texas Reading Academies Overview
Fort Bend ISD Designated as House Bill 3 Reading Academies Authorized Provider
In June of 2019, the 86th Legislature of Texas passed House Bill 3, which encompasses several reforms for the budget and finance of Texas Education. Impacted by this new bill is the new mandate for all Kindergarten through Third Grade Teachers and Principals to complete Texas Reading Academies, steeped in the Science of Teaching Reading, by 2023. As a forerunner in education and an instructional leader for the state of Texas, Fort Bend ISD became an authorized provider for Texas Reading Academies Implementation through TEA’s approval process.
FBISD is looking forward to not only impacting students within our own district but throughout the region. We believe teachers who have a stronger capacity to support primary literacy development will result in increased student success. We know that success in reading launches students to achieve success in futures beyond what we can imagine. As an authorized provider, we look forward to working with your organization to help you achieve greater student success, too!
