Fort Bend Independent School District (FBISD) equips and encourages its students to create futures they could never have anticipated. As a nationally acclaimed District, FBISD offers PreK-12 students 82 campuses – 11 high schools, 15 middle schools, 51 elementary schools and five distinct campuses tailored specifically to meet academic and vocational interests – that foster innovation and success in academics and vocational pursuits.
Career and Technical Education
Students begin exploring career options early through the district’s comprehensive Career and Technical Education program, giving them exposure to real world practices while expanding their skill sets through activities such as guest speakers, job shadowing and internships. We offer 14 CTE programs of study that meet high school graduation endorsement requirements while also offering coherent sequences of rigorous courses – when students finish one they may even earn industry certificates or licenses!
James Reese Career and Technical Education Center provides access to advanced CTE programming for all eleven FBISD high schools. Students may either drive themselves or utilize district transportation to attend classes at Reese for part of each day while remaining active members on their home campuses.
Reese Center will not only benefit high school students; elementary and middle school students will be able to engage with its facilities through field trips and district-wide programs as well. Furthermore, students will operate Enterprise Learning Labs that will open to the public – giving real world experience while giving back to the community.
FBISD Skyward offers numerous student recruitment events throughout the year to inform prospective employees about our schools and available positions.
At the high school level, students can explore an array of innovative programming options like Early College High School or Pathways in Technology that combine high school coursework with college credit-earning opportunities – offering up to two years tuition-free college credit while simultaneously receiving their high school diploma.
District’s Progressive HS program also provides leadership training to 4th grade elementary school students and equips them to create and implement their own Profile of a Graduate project on campus. Click here for more information on this exciting new initiative!
Students enrolled in Extended Day can choose to remain on campus and take part in various activities – be it working on homework, playing outside or indoors games, relaxing with friends in a safe and supervised environment or working on school work.
School districts may provide extended-day programs on their campuses to support working parents, and to give their students an educationally enriching environment before and after school, on non-school days and during intersessions. Studies conducted between 1987-88 and 1990-91 demonstrated that urban areas reported having more extended-day programs than did rural locations.
All students must be picked up by a parent or authorized adult with valid picture identification, and any changes to Extended Day registration for fall 2023 may incur a $25 change fee per request – this helps us ensure there will be enough staff members available to care for your child!

Whole Child Health Initiative
The Whole Child Health Initiative provides comprehensive systems of support to foster students’ cognitive, physical, and social emotional growth. The ultimate aim is for each child to enter school healthy with positive relationships to school staff and staff members as well as accessing high-quality academic instruction from caring instructors who provide an optimal learning experience and have high expectations of them.
The Integrated Child Risk Index (ICRI) is an assessment that measures and predicts complex child risks to predict critical outcomes such as flourishing, educational preparedness/engagement and emergency or forgone care needs. Valid on both national and state levels, its data allows identification of needs, documentation of inequities, tailoring services to child subgroups for comparative evaluation purposes and supporting integrated systems of care. ICRI data can also inform state policymaking initiatives related to health reform efforts or Medicaid risk stratification/payment models as well as state policymaking efforts related to health reform efforts or Medicaid risk stratification/payment models which inform integrated systems of care as well as inform state policymaking efforts relating to policy reform initiatives or risk stratification/payment models used within state policies as well as health reform efforts related to health reform efforts or even Medicaid risk stratification/payment models with family-centric primary care medical homes utilizing its data.
