PEOPLE: Charles Dupre Receives Contract Extension Through April 2018 from Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees

# # # #


Contract extended through April of 2018, includes salary increase

Fort Bend ISD – At a Regular Board Meeting on November 17, members of the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to amend the employment contract of Superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre, extending the agreement through April 30, 2018.

Dupre’s initial contract, signed in April of 2013, was due to expire in 2016. In addition to extending the duration of the contract, the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees also agreed to a five percent increase in Dupre’s base salary of $285,000 to $299,000 annually and an additional 10 vacation days.

“Under Dr. Dupre’s leadership, the Board of Trustees feels the District has made great strides during the last year and a half,” said Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees President Grayle James. “Moving forward, our Board is committed to continuing to work as a team, with the community, and with Dr. Dupre in order to fulfill the District’s mission.”

Dupre was named the Superintendent of Fort Bend ISD in April of 2013, joining Fort Bend ISD from Pflugerville, where he served six years as the Pflugerville ISD Superintendent and was named the Region 13 Superintendent of the Year in 2012.

Before his time in Pflugerville, Dupre worked 11 years in Fort Bend ISD, serving as the District’s Associate Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer.

Under the agreement signed Monday, all other terms of Dupre’s previous contract remain in effect. In addition to his base salary, Dupre receives $700 a month for a vehicle and vehicle-related expenses and a $300 a month technology allowance. The contract, including the amendment, is available to view on the District’s website at www.fortbendisd.com.
