Fort Bend ISD launches “Goodnight, Fort Bend” to promote literacy (9/5/2019)

FORT BEND ISD (September 5, 2019) – Fort Bend ISD is excited to launch a new weekly video series to help promote literacy development in young learners. Each Thursday, Fort Bend ISD will release a new “Goodnight, Fort Bend” video that features an FBISD staff or community member reading a children’s tale. The videos will be shared each Thursday at 7:00 p.m. on the District’s Facebook page, and also posted to the District’s website at


“Building the foundation for literacy begins at home, and before students ever enroll in Fort Bend ISD,” said Fort Bend ISD Director of Literacy Lisa Coston.


“It is our hope that our greater FBISD community will partner with us to share and promote these videos, encouraging and promoting literacy to young children.”


The first video will be shared Thursday, September 5, and will feature Dr. Charles Dupre, the FBISD Superintendent of Schools.


“Goodnight, Fort Bend” is part of a larger effort called “Fort Bend Reads,” which aims to give adults the resources they need to help promote the development of literacy skills. For more information and resources, visit
