• External (Out-of-District) Professional Learning

    Teachers Only

    From time to time, teachers and other district staff may attend professional learning outside of Fort Worth ISD. We call this external professional learning or out-of-district professional learning. External professional learning includes conferences, training, seminars, and consultants that provide professional learning to Fort Worth ISD employees

    The District uses the Approved External Professional Learning List to ensure that our learning and practices are aligned with the District’s goals and priorities. The list was vetted and approved by Fort Worth ISD professional learning providers and departments.

    Teachers might want to receive FLEX credit after attending an approved external professional learning opportunity; they must provide the Professional Learning Department with details and a certificate of completion. On this page, you find the process for requesting FLEX Credit for Out-of-District Professional Learning. Scroll down for more information.
