For the first time in nearly two years, Fort Bend ISD students returned to Meadows Elementary School on April 5.

More than $32 million was budgeted to rebuild the school, located at 12037 Pender Lane, Meadows Place, in the 2018 FBISD bond.

Meadows Elementary students had been hosted by Barrington Place Elementary School throughout the entirety of the rebuild, which began in the summer of 2019.


While students were scheduled to return to the campus in January, the project experienced pandemic-related delays. www.fortbendisd.com
