Fort Bend ISD Considers Rezoning 5 High Schools

SUGAR LAND, TX — The Fort Bend ISD board of trustees will meet Monday night to consider a vote on a rezoning proposal later this month. The board will hear a recommendation to rezone Malala Yousafzai Elementary and rezone to balance enrollment at high schools in the southeast portion of the district, officials said.

The proposed changes, if approved, would shift feeder patterns for elementary and middle schools and impact enrollment at Ridge Point High School, Willowridge High School, Elkins, High School, Marshall High School, and Hightower High School.

FBISD Superintendent Charles Dupre sent a letter to parents on Friday that outlined the plan ahead of Monday’s meeting.

“I am bringing this to your attention because we originally planned to bring the elementary recommendation in January, followed by the high school recommendation in February; however, the earlier high school recommendation was based on several factors, including feedback received following the community meetings via the online surveys, which we continued to receive and review during the recent winter break,” Dupre said in his letter.

Fort Bend ISD residents can see the proposed changes here.

The board will vote on the zone recommendations at a meeting scheduled for later this month.
