Fort Bend ISD is inviting parents and community members, including in the Richmond and Pecan Grove areas, to serve on its new School Boundary Oversight Committee.
FBISD is asking those to be considered to submit online applications that will be accepted through Aug. 25.
The FBISD board of trustees modified its policy that addresses school attendance areas in May 2019 and established the development of the SBOC, which specifies that membership shall include one community member and three parents from each high school feeder pattern (which consists of elementary schools, middle schools, and one high school).
“Modifying and changing attendance boundaries is never something the Board of Trustees takes lightly, and we remain committed to involving the community in this process,” board president Jason Burdine said.
“Through the establishment of the SBOC, our Board is ensuring another level of parent and community engagement following each annual enrollment review. While changing boundaries is difficult, the needs of all students are at the forefront.”
As an oversight committee, the SBOC will also be charged with gaining community input on any proposed change by holding community meetings in any areas that could be affected.
Additional information about the School Boundary Oversight Committee and the online application can be located online at www.fortbendisd.com/SBOC.
All applications will be reviewed by FBISD staff using objective criteria to ensure representation from each high school feeder pattern. Final appointment by the board of trustees will take place in September.
