    Attendance Boundary Plan Update

    At the Jan. 23 Regular Board Meeting, the FBISD Board of Trustees approved attendance boundaries for three new elementary schools and a new middle school, as well as additional boundary modifications for several schools that will have increased capacity due to classroom additions.  All changes, with the exception of campuses affected by the opening of Thornton Middle School (MS 15), will be implemented during the 2017-18 school year.

    Three new elementary schools will open in August of 2017, including:

    • Donald Leonetti Elementary, located in the Sienna Plantation community
    • James C. Neill Elementary, located in the Harvest Green community
    • James Patterson Elementary, located in the Grand Vista community

    Additionally, Ronald Thornton Middle School, located in the Sienna Plantation community, will open in August of 2018.

    Approved Boundary Changes impact the schools listed below. To view the changes adopted in January 2017, please click on the school name below.

    Parents and students affected by the boundary changes will receive notification via email and regular U.S. Mail by mid-March. After viewing the boundary maps, if you still would like to verify attendance boundaries for your home address, please use "Let’s Talk." Please be sure to include your name, address, and your child’s current grade in your submission.

    Information about programs (preK, bilingual, etc.) will be communicated at a later date. 

    NOTE:  Transfinder (bus route locater) reflects the current 2016-17 attendance boundaries.  Schools affected by the opening of Patterson ES (ES 48), Neill ES (ES 49), Patterson ES (ES 50), and Thornton MS (MS 15) – as well as changes due to increased capacity at some schools – will be reflected on Transfinder later in the spring as implementation plans are finalized.

    In the fall of 2016, Fort Bend ISD began its collaborative boundary-planning process with the assistance of consulting firm De-JONG RICHTER. The process included focus groups, community meetings and opportunities for online feedback. After presenting its initial boundary options at two November community meetings, the District reviewed feedback from more than 1,000 completed surveys and online responses before submitting its final recommendations on January 23.
