Fort Bend ISD is committed to providing an educational system that will enable all students to reach their full potential, and strongly believes that every child deserves an equitable education and safe environment in which to thrive.
The district also knows that it cannot do this alone, and that students benefit from a collaborative community. This week, FBISD launched its “Fort Bend Forward” survey, asking all parents and guardians, staff members, community members and students in grades 6-12 to participate.
The survey is the first phase of a strategic effort to understand how the district – together with the community – can better support the current and future students as they develop the skills and attributes included in the Profile of a Graduate. Survey questions address overall perceptions and valuing of equity, culture and climate, safety and behavior, policies and procedures, access and opportunities, family support and inclusion, and curriculum and instruction. The results will help school and district leaders better understand Fort Bend ISD students, identify gaps in student support, and help lead to meaningful changes.
Following the survey, Fort Bend ISD will work with K12Insight to host focus group discussions at campuses throughout the district, using the survey feedback to lead to deeper conversations about the unique needs of each campus community. Ultimately, Fort Bend ISD aims to develop prescriptive, strategic plans for each campus that combine the district’s efforts with those of the community partners and resources.
Fort Bend ISD parents and staff members should check their email for an invitation and survey link, and students with permission for surveys will have an opportunity to participate during the school day.
Community members are invited to participate online at www.fortbendisd.com/fortbendforward.
