According to Fort Bend ISD, a lab will be set up on site to study the remains.
In all, 94 graves have been found at the construction site, which is located near University Chatham near Highway 6.
Dr. Ken Brown, an anthropology professor at the University of Houston, told Eyewitness News that its not just forensic science that could be of value at the site.
"To me, the forensic study is important, but so is the historical study," Brown said.
Brown and others have been vocal about having someone come in who specializes in knowledge of African American history in Fort Bend. Some believe that the bodies buried at the site could be African American prisoners who were contracted out for labor.
FBISD says it will bury the remains again at the Old Imperial Farm cemetery.
