Community Invited to Fort Bend ISD Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election Information Sessions

Fort Bend ISD is hosting three community information sessions this month on the Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election, which will generate additional revenue for the district while sustaining the current tax rate.

During its August 22nd regular business meeting, the FBISD Board of Trustees approved the Voter-Approval Tax Rate Election (VATRE) which will fund police officers at every elementary campus, increase employee compensation and maintain educational programs of choice. The VATRE will appear on the ballot in the upcoming November 8th, 2022 election.

The information sessions will give community members an opportunity to receive detailed information about the VATRE and ask any questions they may have. All FBISD community members are welcome to attend.

Spanish translators will be available at all three sessions. A sign language interpreter will be available at the September 26 session held at Dulles High School’s Rodgers Auditorium.

Below are the VATRE community information session dates and locations:

  • The first session is Wednesday, September 21 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Austin High School in the auditorium (3434 Pheasant Creek Drive, Sugar Land, 77498).
