  • The Fort Worth ISD (FWISD) is actively collaborating with Tarrant County Public Health and Texas Department of State Health Services to “Know the Plan” about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-9).  

    Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent Scribner has announced that schools will remain closed and students will remain at home, receiving online instruction until further notice.

     “All schools will remain closed until we believe we can safely bring students back to school buildings for in-person teaching and learning and other school-related activities,” Dr. Scribner said.

Welcome to Safety and Security

  • Safety & Security works closely with surrounding local Police Departments in creating a culture of preparedness to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for students and teachers.

    It takes all stakeholders – students, parents and community members working together – to be aware of surroundings and situations that might create a hazardous environment.

    Safety and security measures are designed to create and sustain a positive learning environment, as well as to protect property.

    Education, drills and best practices will result in a “culture of preparedness.”

    The consequences of an interrupted education can be both tragic and costly.
