—Fort Bend County Judge KP George
FORT BEND ISD (July 14, 2021) – Fort Bend ISD is seeking input from its stakeholders and has launched a survey to capture the community’s priorities for the 2021-22 school year as the District drafts a grant application for funding from the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief program, ESSER III.
The survey will close on Wednesday, July 21 at 4:30 p.m., and is available in both English and Spanish.
FBISD will use the additional resources to support students’ learning loss, academic and social-emotional supports, health and safety measures and continuity of services.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has allocated funding for Texas school districts, and FBISD is applying for its portion of the funds for the upcoming school year. The funding is available as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP), which was approved in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan for the 2021-22 school year is available for review by all stakeholders, in English and Spanish. The plan includes details on a range of topics related to the launch and progression of the new school year, which begins for students on August 11.
Fort Bend County will spend $157 million dollars in federal COVID-19 relief funds, after a majority vote of county commissioners passed despite the objections of Fort Bend County Judge KP George.
George was the only member of the commissioners court to vote against the spending plan, funding for which would be allocated under the American Rescue Plan.
The county judge said the plan approved by Fort Bend County’s four commissioners – two Republicans and two Democrats – includes many items that have little or nothing to do with helping the county recover from the pandemic, including a multimillion-dollar courtroom expansion and new government buildings, government vehicles, and government audio-visual tools.
"They cut (a) deal behind the scenes and came and voted on it, and $157 million, the debate was less than one minute,” George said. “That explains a lot. So, unfortunately...I had to stand by principle. I know that I am alone in this."
Houston Public Media reached out to commissioners Vincent Morales, Grady Prestage, Andy Meyers, and Ken DeMerchant for comment. None were available by press time, as the court was meeting all day Wednesday to discuss budget matters.
George went up to the line of accusing the commissioners of breaking the law in the way they came to their decision on how to spend the funds,
"Everything was decided already, which is even in my opinion, a violation of (the) Open Meetings Act," George said, before walking it back slightly, saying he had “no proof.”
George also said the plan picked winners and losers, by singling out specific organizations for relief funding instead of using an open application process.
“This commissioners court meeting, there is five nonprofit organizations,” George said. “I called them, and I work with them every single day. They came and spoke and said, ‘you know, why are you not giving us a piece of it?' And then some people are getting up to $4 million. In my opinion, that is absolutely not OK.”
In a follow-up statement, George clarified his position.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that requires us to include the community's input," George wrote. "While I support those organizations and some of the items included in the preliminary proposal, this should be a transparent process in which members of the community and community organizations have an opportunity to actively participate."
