FBISD – Farmers Bluff Independent School District

Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education provides challenging career pathways for all students by harnessing real world experiences while expanding skills sets, attitudes and beliefs. At the James Reese Career and Technical Center of the district lies an innovative center where advanced CTE programming is offered in Agriculture, Natural Resources, Architecture & Construction, Arts & Audio/Video Technologies & Communications, Business Management, Culinary Arts Education Training Health Science Information Technology Engineering Mathematics STEM Law Public Safety Transportation Logistics are just some of the disciplines offered. At Reese Center, students may earn industry certifications and dual credit upon completing these programs. Students from each of the eleven high schools accessing advanced programs can remain at their home campuses during part of their school day while still benefitting from attending Reese Center programs; additionally elementary and middle school students experience Reese Center through field trips or district-wide programs, expanding their imagination about possible future career pathways.

CTE provides several other offerings, including SkillsUSA, HOSA and DECA.

Extended Day

Extended Day is a form of before and after-school care offered on school campuses for children of working parents who must stay after the end of each school day to complete their employment obligations. Students are supervised by adults and participate in educationally enriching activities. From 1987-1988 to 1990-1991, public and private elementary schools with Extended Day programs had higher than national average participation.

Trojan Extended Day (TED) offers TVS students in grades PreK-4 an engaging and safe before- and after-school experience that emphasizes indoor/outdoor play while providing homework time and snack breaks. Coordinated by Cynthia Davis, TED Coordinator.

Families enrolling their children in TED sessions will be charged monthly fees which will be billed through Amilia accounts. Fees are calculated based on a school-year calendar and don’t take into account school closures, holidays or teacher planning days. Our patrons help support us hiring quality local journalists from Texas; your one-time or monthly donation brings us one step closer towards providing quality news that matters in your community.
