Dr. Joe Rodriguez has been named an assistant superintendent in Fort Bend ISD. He replaces Dr. Mark Foust, who is currently in his new role as the district’s chief of schools.

“I am extremely honored to join the FBISD team,” Rodriguez said. “The district’s statewide reputation of excellence and making students their highest priority was critical in my decision to join this highly-respected organization. As a member of the Department of School Leadership, I look forward to serving the Fort Bend community and becoming a system of support for the students, educators, and parents in order to help our students reach their full potential as 21st century learners.”
Rodriguez earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and his master’s degree in educational administration and doctorate of educational leadership at Texas A&M University.
