Registration details: Local Social Studies Standard Focus Groups April 16, 2019 (4/11/19)

Fort Bend ISD’s curriculum team will be hosting a focus group opportunity on April 16, 2019 as the District works toward incorporating an important piece of local history into the District’s curriculum. Since the fall, FBISD’s curriculum team has been engaging with an advisory committee regarding the discovery of a historic cemetery at the James Reese Career and Technical Center. The next step in the process is the adoption of a local standard that would address local history and promote critical thinking, to be followed by curriculum development, the identification of student learning experiences and professional learning opportunities for staff.

Focus groups will be held April 16 at 6:00 p.m. at the FBISD Triplex (550 Julie Rivers Dr, Sugar Land, TX 77478). Registration is open to all, but pre-registration is required. To register, visit
