On April 11, 2013, the Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved Charles E. Dupre as Superintendent of Schools for the state’s seventh largest school district. Dupre will officially assume the duties of Fort Bend ISD Superintendent on April 29.
With a passion for serving children and young adults, Dupre has invested many hours in shaping the future of others through his role as mentor, Sunday school teacher, camp counselor, and friend. Serving as superintendent of Pflugerville ISD since 2006, Dupre's commitment to developing capable young people has been supported by his background in financial management.
Dupre was named Region 13 Superintendent of the Year in 2012, and was recognized by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) as one of the top five finalists for Texas Superintendent of the Year. The Greater Aus-tin Chamber of Commerce in 2012 named Dupre Superintendent of the Year in recognition of his efforts to im-prove college and career readiness rates through the strategic allocation of resources and innovative instruc-tional programming. In June 2008, The University Council for Education Administration, housed at The Univer-sity of Texas at Austin, awarded Dupre the Excellence in Education Leadership Award for his dedication to im-proving the training and development of school leaders.
Dupre joined Pflugerville ISD as Deputy Superintendent in 2006 from Fort Bend ISD, where he served as Associ-ate Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer. During his 11-year tenure in Fort Bend ISD, Dupre was responsi-ble for an annual budget that exceeded $500 million.
Born in Casablanca, Morocco, Dupre was raised near Springfield, Missouri. He received his BBA with a major in Accounting from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, and Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Houston. He is currently pursuing his doctorate in educational leadership at Lamar Uni-versity in Beaumont. Dupre is a Certified Public Accountant.
Dupre and his wife, Seeju, are the parents of two sons and a grandson.
