• Approved Policy Changes to Class Rank – Policy EIC (Local)


    In accordance with Fort Bend ISD’s Profile of a Graduate, FBISD is committed to developing students with a strong academic foundation, and who are also well-rounded with the life skills that will help them achieve success as members of our ever-changing society.

     

    Our Board of Trustees values the development of all students’ social and emotional learning and well-being, and the attainment of all seven Profile of a Graduate attributes. With this in mind, the Board has adopted changes to EIC (Local) that will change the way Fort Bend ISD issues transcripts and recognizes student achievement, providing a more comprehensive review of a student’s high school record, beyond the traditional “ranking” system.
