• Under the leadership of the Fort Worth ISD Superintendent and the Board of Education, the Career and Technical Education provides a series of cradle-to-career initiatives to transform Fort Worth ISD learning.   

    One of the initiatives is the refreshed and expanded Vital Link – Connecting Students to Careers. Vital Link is a unique business and education partnership program designed to give students and their teachers the opportunity to gain real-world work experience and apply the skills learned at school to the workplace. 

    The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce, and the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce view collaboration by employers with our school district as a best practice for talent development, attraction, and retention. Other community partners and Vital Link advisory committee members include Tarrant County College, Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, Texas Wesleyan University, and regional businesses and community leaders.

    Contact the Office of Innovation to learn more about Vital Link and how to impact your future workforce by supporting this educational initiative.
