FBISD Releases Statement Regarding Notice of TEA Special Investigation

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has notified the district it will investigate complaints that the district unlawfully incentivized students and staff to vote in last year's 2023 VATRE election and engaged in electioneering, as well as a complaint that trustees violated the Texas Open Meetings Act when making employment decisions regarding the district’s former superintendent.

“The district will fully cooperate with TEA’s investigation,” Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith said. “We are dedicated to being transparent and will provide all requested information.” 

“It is a new day in Fort Bend ISD with a new administration,” Fort Bend ISD Board President Kristin Tassin said. “Our board intends to work with Dr. Smith to ensure our district fully cooperates with the TEA and is transparent with our community.”
