FBISD Hosts Party to Celebrate 80,000 Students

(SUGAR LAND) - Fort Bend ISD's enrollment has hit the 80,000-mark for the first time in the district's history. The occasion was celebrated on Thursday with an 80s-themed party and a proclamation from Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers.

Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Christie Whitbeck with Ryyan, the 80,000th student to enroll in the district.

"Fort Bend's residents live in one of the most diverse counties in the nation, with people from across the nation and the world choosing to live here because of its inclusive culture, high-paying jobs, exceptional schools, and beautiful communities," Meyers said. "The school district's enrollment reflects the tremendous growth experienced by Fort Bend County, which grew from around 50,000 residents in 1970 to nearly 900,000 today, with estimates projecting we will grow to over 1 million residents by 2027."

The proclamation was presented by Precinct 3 Chief of Staff Andrew VanChau.

Fort Bend ISD celebrated the enrollment milestone by inviting all students and staff to come to school in dress code-appropriate '80s attire. The district also hosted an ‘80s themed party. The cake was decorated with Pac-Man, cassette tapes, and a Rubik's Cube.

The 80,000th student, Rayyan, was there with his parents. Rayyan moved to Fort Bend County from New York.
