FORT BEND ISD (March 10, 2017) – Fort Bend ISD will hold a public hearing and presentation on April 10, 2017 regarding Turnaround Plans for Briargate Elementary and Ridgemont Elementary. The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the FBISD Administration Building (16431 Lexington Blvd, Sugar Land 77479).
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has identified Ridgemont and Briargate as “turnaround campuses” as a result of a TEA rating of Improvement Required, or IR, for two consecutive school years. The TEA requires the District and campus leadership at these schools to create a turnaround plan, detailing actions that will take place to improve student achievement. These improvements include the implementation of the EDGE instructional model at Ridgemont Elementary and Briargate Elementary in 2016-17, which provided new instructional staffing and support strategies, as well as new campus leadership and increased student support.
While developing Turnaround Plans for the two campuses, Fort Bend ISD sought input from parents, staff and community members. Prior to the April 10 public hearing, stakeholders are invited to review the Turnaround Plan and complete a short survey to provide additional feedback.
