New Attendance Procedures

New Attendance Procedures — Beginning this school year, Fort Bend ISD is implementing new attendance procedures to encourage students to be present and engaged in their learning, and increase communication between schools and our families. The new procedures are a result of the 84th Texas Legislature passing House Bill 2398, which changed the state’s attendance laws and created a new civil process governing truancy proceedings. The new procedures will convey the importance of daily attendance, while also supporting students and their families.
