Back to School
  • Dear Families:

    The first day of school is Monday, August 20 – and we want to help you be prepared to make it the best year ever.
    There are many changes this year – and we want to keep you updated on all of them.

    El primer día de clases es el 20 de agosto – y queremos ayudarle a estar preparado para que este año sea el mejor de todos.
    Hay muchos cambios este año y queremos mantenerlos informados en todos ellos.

    Online Registration / Registro en línea

    The Fort Worth ISD has launched District-wide online registration. It’s easy, it’s convenient, and parents will no longer have to fill out multiple forms with the same information. However, in this inaugural year, all students –both new and returning –must complete the online enrollment process.  To learn more, read here.

    El Fort Worth ISD ha lanzado el registro en línea a través de todo el Distrito. Es fácil, es conveniente, y ya los padres no tendrán que llenar múltiples formularios con la misma información. Sin embargo, en este año inaugural, todos los estudiantes, tanto nuevos como regulares, deben completar el proceso de matrícula en línea.   Para conocer más, por favor lea aquí.

    New Hours / Nuevo horario

    Also this fall, the Fort Worth ISD will implement a new daily class schedule. While it means ten to 15 more minutes in class for students, the benefits – both instructionally and operationally – are many.  And, FWISD will join many other districts in aligning with a new state law based on minutes, not days.

    • Fort Worth ISD’s traditional high schools will now begin at 8:25 a.m. and end at 3:40 p.m.
    • Middle school students' days will begin at 9:15 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.
    • And, traditional elementary school students in the Fort Worth ISD will begin at 7:50 a.m. and conclude at 3:00 p.m.

    To learn more – and to see a graphic laying out the new times, read here.

    If you have a specific question, email parentinfo@fwisd.org or call 817.814.2070.

    También en este otoño, Fort Worth ISD implementará un itinerario nuevo de clases por día. Si bien esto significa 10 a 15 minutos más en las clases para los estudiantes, los beneficios, tanto instruccionales como operacionales, son muchos. También Fort Worth ISD se unirá a muchos otros distritos alineándose con la nueva ley estatal basada en minutos, no en días.

    • Las escuelas secundarias tradicionales de Fort Worth ISD comenzarán ahora a las 8:25 a.m. y terminarán a las 3:40 p.m.
    • Los días de los estudiantes de escuela intermedia comenzarán a las 9:15 a.m. y terminarán a las 3:40 p.m.
    • Los días de los estudiantes de escuela intermedia comenzarán a las 9:15 a.m. y terminarán a las 3:40 p.m.

    What Are The Attendance Guidelines

    Texas law (TEC 25.092) requires that any student in grades kindergarten through 12th grade must attend at least 90% of the days any class is offered or the student may not be given credit or a final grade. All absences are calculated and count toward the allowable 10% absence rate.

    We understand that sometimes students just have to be absent – it’s a part of life. There are alternative ways for students to make up work or regain credit or a final grade lost because of absences. Talk with your principal so you have a complete understanding of the requirements and the options available. The best advice is don’t put it off until it’s too late.

    La ley de Texas )TEC 25.092) require que todo estudiante en los grados kínder a 4to año asista al menos el 90 % de los días en que cualquier clase se ofrece o el estudiante pudiera no recibir crédito o una nota final. Todas las ausencias se calculan y cuentan respecto al 10 % de ausentismo permitido.

    Entendemos que hay ocaciones en que los estudiantes tendrán que ausentarse; es parte de la vida. Hay alternativas para que los estudiantes recuperen el trabajo o q vuelvan a ganar crédito o nota final perdida a causa de las ausencias. Comuníquese con el director de la escuela para entender los requisitos y opciones disponibles. El mejor consejo es no lo deje para luego hasta que sea demasiado tarde.
