Badges enhance security in several critical ways such as physical site security and clear identification of District employees. Using badges also allows students, parents, staff, and community members to visually confirm that individuals are associated with the District and have a cleared a background check, which increases District and community confidence.

    In support of this top District priority, the Division of Talent Management is offering no-charge replacement badges to any employee with a lost or broken badge from Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 30.

    Badges are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 12-30 at:

    Division of Talent Management

    817-814-2717

    *Employees who need assistance outside of business hours are encouraged to call Talent Management for scheduling assistance.
