Fort Bend ISD (March 8, 2023) – The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Bend Economic Development Council have announced their endorsements of Fort Bend ISD’s bond that will be considered by the community in the May 6, 2023 election.
On February 16, 2023, the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call the $1.26 billion bond election that will fund major projects throughout the district, with half the funds assigned to updating things like mechanical, electrical, roofing, and plumbing systems that are past their useful life.
FBISD has not had a bond in five years. Some of its 82 campuses are now rated in “critical condition” because they are outdated. The average age of Fort Bend ISD school buildings is 28 years old.
The bond is the continuation of a district-wide master plan to transform its schools and facilities to provide comparable, safe and modern learning spaces and tools for teaching and learning across FBISD.
Every campus will be impacted by this bond election.
