Fort Bend ISD to shift educational approach for six schools

The Fort Bend Independent School District plans to divert away from face-to-face learning to virtual education for six different schools that will go into effect Monday, January 25.

This decision was made by the FBISD COVID-19 response team as an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus as cases continue to increase.

According to the data they collected, their team suggests that continuing face-to-face instruction would be disruptive to instruction and campus operations.

The schools that will be affected by this shift are:

– Pecan Grove Elementary

– Ridgemont Elementary

– Ridgemont Early Literacy Center

– Hodges Bend Middle School

– Christa McAuliffe Middle School

– James Reese Career and Technical Center

At the moment the response team is categorizing these schools as a level three concern whereas previously listed as a level two concern after analyzing the data of cases, according to their response plan.

This transition to virtual learning is said to be temporary and will last through the remainder of the week but could continue to remain in effect if the district decides to extend this method.

At this time, FBISD will continue to provide free breakfast, lunch and dinner meals for all children despite new conditions.

For more information on this change, visit the district website.
