Fort Bend ISD to discuss expected budget cuts

March 3, 2011 5:56:28 PM PST
The Fort Bend Independent School District is holding three Town Hall Meetings for community members to learn more about the state budget cuts and the potential impact the cuts could have on the school district.

The actual impact of the state's budget shortfall will not be known until the Legislature adopts a state budget, which is not expected until this summer.

Meanwhile, the district must proceed with planning the district budget for next school year with the presumption that it may have to be adjusted after the state adopts its budget.

The Budget Town Hall meetings will present an overview of all the issues under consideration, and provide an opportunity to address citizen comments and questions.

All meetings will take place from 7-8:30pm in the cafeterias of the campuses listed below:

Tuesday - March 8, 7:00-8:30 pm - Colony Bend Elementary
2720 Planters Street, Sugar Land 77479
