City of Sugar Land Approves New School Zone Times

Sugar Land, TX - Due to changes to Fort Bend ISD’s classroom schedule, the City of Sugar Land modified school zone times for the 2016-2017 school year.

Fort Bend ISD notified the City that the district modified daily schedules to comply with Texas House Bill No. 2610. Fort Bend ISD approved adding 15 minutes to the end of daily class schedules, as follows:

  • Elementary schools will start at 8:10 a.m. and end at 3:25 p.m.
  • Middle schools will start at 8:55 a.m. and end at 4:10 p.m.
  • High schools will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:45 p.m.
The City modified the school zone times to account for the extended schedules. City staff utilized state guidelines from the Texas Transportation Institute to determine active school zone times. The City also coordinated with Fort Bend ISD, private schools, Fort Bend County and adjacent cities to develop the new school zone times.

City Council approved the new school zone times on Aug. 2 and adopted Ordinance No. 2059. The City will update school zone signs by Aug. 22, the first day of Fort Bend ISD classes. The following table shows the new morning and afternoon school zone times for the 2016-2017 school year:
