FBISD to explore sending poor-performing students back to classrooms

Fort Bend, TX – Fort Bend ISD may begin cracking down on low-performing students.

Earlier this month the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released guidance giving districts the authority to discontinue virtual learning for students whose class averages were below the 70 percentile and/or had three or more unexcused absences within a single grading period.

FBISD Superintendent Charles Dupre responded in part saying that, “what it would mean in the end is demanding that a kid return face-to-face in defiance of their parents wishes for their well-being”. 

Fort Bend ISD teachers and campus administrators are ‘very concerned’ that students’ performances have declined significantly and will thoroughly explore the option before making their final decision.
