    Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees adopts legislative priorities for the Texas 87th Legislative Session

    In the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustee’s continued efforts to protect the future of Texas public education, the Board unanimously approved and adopted two legislative resolutions at the October 19, 2020, Regular Board Meeting. These resolutions were adopted ahead of the Texas 87th Legislative Session, which begins on January 12, 2021 and will address a number of issues that will affect FBISD and districts across the state.

    The two resolutions as adopted by the FBISD Board of Trustees address:

    Flexible Funding to Enable Student Choice          Flexible Bond Funding to Support Student Choice

    These resolutions further help to reinforce FBISD’s Core Beliefs and Commitments, Mission, Vision, District Goals and Priorities, and the Profile of a Graduate, which have all been approved by the Board and define all decision-making efforts in order to benefit each child in Fort Bend ISD.
