Fort Bend ISD recently issued a new GPA-exemption policy that allowed students taking consecutive years of an extracurricular (sports, fine arts, etc.) to be GPA-exempt once they reach their third/fourth year of taking the course.
While this change has been long-awaited and necessary, the FBISD Board has decided that this policy will only be applicable to the class of 2017 (freshman class) and beyond. This puts other current high school students at a disadvantage because they do not get the same benefits as the freshmen class despite taking three/four years of an extracurricular. If the board is to continue in implementing this change to the district, we request that they either change the policy to include this year's sophomores and juniors (along with the freshmen class) or begin the change with next year's freshmen in order to even out the playing field.
