  1. Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com reported that after 1 year and a 1/2, TV reporter Amanda Perez is leaving KPRC-TV NBC 2 Houston for the world of education. "I'll soon be working for Fort Bend ISD as the district's media relations coordinator," Perez told mikemcguff.com. "It's hard to say goodbye to all the amazing folks at Local 2, but I'm ready for a new challenge." http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/09/amanda-perez-leaves-kprc-2-for-fort-bend-isd.html?m=1 Reaction from anyone on Perez leaving the Houston NBC affiliate?
  2. I've recently been told by a builder that FBISD and AISD are in talks and Alvin is trying to get all of SCR to their district. Anyone know anything on this or has this been going on for a while and continue to just be speculation. I am just nervous of the schools on the Fort Bend Side. Am I overreacting to all of this? I would think in 10+ years a new high school will be available. Willowridge as it stands has subpar dropout rates, ect. This is a make or break deal for moving to SCR (Arbor Lakes). Any help would be great.
  3. A long time ago there was discussion about a new FBISD high school in Telfair. I thought that idea was discarded, but someone recently told me that it will happen. Does anyone know for sure and if so, what is the time frame?
  4. Pearland ISD should have tried hard to grab the Fort Bend County portion of SCR. Willowridge HS is not attractive at all now unfortunately.
  5. does anyone seemed concerned that Fort Bend ISD has allowed its dumb policy of smaller schools lead to overbuilding of schools and the potential HISD model (too many schools with no enrollment)? The east end of the district says it all as they let Willowridge, the only school in the district who had a national name, go to shambles as they dropped a $22 million dollar palace named Thurgood Marshall eight miles away that has now dropped in enrollment? I saw a band video from 2 different eras and its sad how the nation's premiere marching band has been reduced to a thread of itself due to blatent rezoning by the district (jealousy) and lower enrollment due to the district implementing freedom of choice On the west end, you have Travis, a small school just built literally miles away from 2 other high schools, Bush and Austin, going to burst at the seams and a new one about to come shortly.... in 20 years with an economic downturn, what happens to all of these schools when they aren't filled to capacity? Do you foresee another Houston ISD where they built schools for whites only to see them dump the school within a few years for other districts? The east end proves that is going to happen as they beg for your yes vote during bond time, build your school of choice only to realize the same individuals who are begging for these schools are usually long gone by the time these schools open...Marshall was promised in the 90s but the families the district solicited for the vote never sent their kids there.... I forsee a major contraction coming in the near future as the district continues to build small when building big would be better...
  6. Shadow Creek Ranch announced where the Fort Bend ISD neighborhoods are zoned. SCR in Fort Bend County is zoned to Willowridge HS, McAuliffe MS, and Blue Ridge ES. All three schools are in Houston. SCR states this here: http://www.shadowcreekranch.net/education/e_defaultfs.html In 2005 it was announced that FBISD residents could send their kids to Marek ES (on the Brazoria County side in Alvin ISD) until FBISD builds new schools. So far FBISD has not built schools for the FBISD part of SCR http://www.thefacts.com/story.lasso?ewcd=93cbae23a45c958b
  7. The Fort Bend Independent School District is in the process of rezoning the entire district. Many parents and community members are against some of the newly proposed plans. The district has several overcrowded schools and will be rezoning hundreds of students. Fort Bend ISD Rezoning Proposal Story found on HCN Online
