COMING SOON: FORT BEND ISD PRE-REGISTRATION
In the coming weeks, after the District has announced more detailed plans for the 2020-21 school year, we will ask families to pre-register. During pre-registration, families will indicate whether their students will be returning to face-to-face instruction in August, or if they plan to take advantage of a fully online model due to personal health and safety concerns. This pre-registration is important so that we can more effectively plan to support students, and again, we will continue to keep you updated every step of the way.
 
Please continue to monitor your email, and visit the Fort Bend ISD website and social media channels for additional updates.
