Fort Bend ISD families selected whether their students would continue with online learning or return in person for the second nine weeks of instruction through a survey Sept. 3-10.

According to the results, 59.81% of students districtwide will remain online, while 40.19% will return for in-person learning. The 7.34% of students who did not select a learning model were defaulted to face-to-face learning.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all students have the option to remain fully online for the entire school year. Students can switch between learning models between nine-week grading periods.


The FBISD board of trustees approved the district's return-to-the-classroom timeline during its Sept. 14 meeting. Under the plan, teachers will report back to the classroom Sept. 23, followed by elementary students gradually returning to campus by grade level starting Sept. 28 and secondary students transitioning back during the week of Oct. 5.

All students who selected face-to-face learning will be back on campus Oct. 9 ahead of the start of the second nine weeks Oct. 12.
