Three New FBISD Campuses Open This Week

Three new Fort Bend ISD campuses opened to students this week, thanks to passage of the 2023 bond issue. Other improvements are currently underway thanks to this effort.

In November, voters will see a proposal to increase teacher pay on their ballots. It requires a 2 cent per $100 valuation tax increase that does not impact homeowners with exemptions for homeowners age 65 and over or disabled homestead exemptions.

Whole Child Health Initiative

The Whole Child Framework involves moving away from traditional measures of education success towards collaborative initiatives that foster sustainable health and well-being for all children. It emphasizes students’ physical, social-emotional and intellectual growth to prepare them to be productive adults who contribute positively to society.

Students require safe environments that promote mental, emotional and physical wellbeing in order to flourish into successful adults. Teachers, communities and families who affirm identities and strengths while lifting up voices of students. Students also require healthy habits like nutritious food, physical activity and sufficient rest which contribute to lifelong wellbeing.

Skyward FBISD takes pride in supporting all students’ mental, behavioral, social-emotional and physical wellbeing as part of its vision for student success. Through focusing on supporting all aspects of student health including mental, behavioral, social-emotional and physical well-being they provide students with tools they need for an exceptional future that exceeds any expectation they had previously imagined.

Career and Technical Education

Pennsylvania boasts more than 80 career and technical education centers (CTE), which provide programs meeting high academic standards for their students. CTE also provides hands-on learning experiences to explore careers in skilled trades or modern technologies.

Rigorous academics and industry-specific training equip students to become outstanding workers and citizens. Unlike vocational schools of yesteryear, modern career and technical education aligns closely with industry needs and trends and offers numerous career pathways ranging from agriculture to healthcare and culinary arts.

Based on its structure and student demographics, career-technical programs may resemble academic tracks. There have long been discussions surrounding career-technical education as a form of “tracking,” whereby schools assign certain students into specific courses based on their perceived abilities or potential.

Fine Arts

Fine arts encompass visual art, music, theatre and writing as creative forms of artistic expression. This track equips students with the necessary skills for pursuing an artistic career professionally.

European academic traditions typically use the term “fine art” to refer to art that was produced solely for aesthetic or creative reasons, as opposed to objects like pottery or most metalwork that also serve a practical function. While this definition often applied only to Western art forms, its concept can also be extended to encompass other art forms.

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program features an expansive curriculum with studio courses such as painting, drawing and sculpture as well as 4D media such as video, experimental sound and social practice. Students enrolled in our BFA program gain valuable experience working across disciplines thanks to accessing famous museums, galleries and internships, along with access to working artists who serve as mentors and teachers – an advantage made even stronger due to our faculty of practicing artists that serve as mentors and teach – mentoring sessions, workshops that explore contemporary themes like social impact and alternative systems of representation!

Athletics

Athletics athletes compete in running, jumping and throwing events that are regulated by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), established in 1912.

Hurdling and other flat running events such as long jump, high jump and the hammer throw are jumping and throwing events, while decathlon and heptathlon races combine running with jumping events.

Professional athletics may require stadiums and set courses on grass or roads for competition, yet other forms of athletic competition can take place almost anywhere and require minimal equipment.

This unit for year three students includes six lessons with plans, PowerPoints, nonparticipation sheets, assessment materials, display resources and CPD documents. As they work through sprinting, standing long jump and overarm throw activities they will develop their running, jumping and throwing abilities while learning proper technique for pole vaulting.
