Community members and parents invited to share feedback, participate in roundtable discussions

FORT BEND ISD (September 26, 2017) – The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees will once again be coming to a school near you as part of the 2017 – 18 Listening and Literacy Tours. The events will give the Board an opportunity to hear from parents, community members and other stakeholders.
Last year, the Board held four Listening Tours throughout the District. This year, the Board is excited to introduce the Literacy Tours, which will take place at elementary schools and help promote the importance of literacy. Starting at 6 p.m., Board members will be reading to students, talking to them and answering their questions. If time permits, Board members will also engage with parents and community members afterward. At the conclusion, attendees are invited to stay for the Board’s monthly workshop, which begins at 7 p.m.
The Listening Tours will consist of roundtable discussions, which begin at 6 p.m. and provide opportunities for parents, staff and community members to ask questions directly to FBISD Board members and District leaders. Attendees are invited to stay for the Board’s monthly workshop, which begins at 7 p.m.
“We really enjoyed hearing and interacting with the community one-on-one during last year’s Listening Tours,” said Kristin Tassin, FBISD Board President. “This year, we are so excited to not only engage with our parents and stakeholders, but our students as well. We encourage everyone to try and make it out.”
