Fort Bend ISD Bond Update: It’s All in the Details
The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce’s Education Division will host Fort Bend ISD Superintendent, Dr. Charles Dupre, on Friday, September 7, 2018 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM at the Fort Bend Chamber office, 445 Commerce Green Blvd. in Sugar Land.

Fort Bend ISD trustees and staff are developing a capital plan that includes classroom additions, major maintenance and renovations, and recommendations from the district’s facilities, technology and safety and security master plans. The board must prioritize these considerations to include in a possible 2018 bond package. If approved, the district must call for an election by Aug. 20th.
Dr. Dupre will present details of the bond approval process and the district’s needs for construction, facility and equipment replacement, transportation, and technology in a capital plan that outlines $1.7 billion in potential costs.
Fort Bend ISD is the 7th largest district in Texas. Dr. Charles E. Dupre was appointed Superintendent of Schools in April 2013, bringing more than twenty years of experience in education, and track record of increasing graduation rates and improving educational outcomes for students.
