Christene C. Moss, formerly Eastland Elementary School, was built in 1953. In 2005, the school was renamed after our current School Board member, Christene C. Moss. Our school is located at 4108 Eastland Street, Fort Worth, TX 76119. It was a TEA recognized campus for the 2005-2006 school year, and again in the 2008-2009 school year. We service approximately 435 students in grades Pre-K through 5th. In 2016 an addition was built onto the school, expanding the pre kindergarten program.
Christene Chadwick Moss obtained an ADA degree from Tarrant County College, a bachelor's degree from Texas Wesleyan University, and a master's degree from Texas Woman's University. When she served on the school board, she was a registered nurse and worked with the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services. She previously served as an adjunct professor at Tarrant County College.
Christene Chadwick Moss was first elected to represent District 3 of the FWISD in 1990. She was the first female African-American board president and is a Master School Board Trustee of Leadership Texas Association of School Boards. In 2005, FWISD named Christene C. Moss Elementary in her honor. Mrs. Moss is an advocate for ALL children and the empowerment of education. She is passionate about literacy. The Salvation Army named its Children's Library in honor of Mrs. Moss due to her dedication to homeless children. Under Mrs. Moss' leadership FWISD opened two single-gender leadership academies, Young Women's Leadership Academy and Young Men's Leadership Academy. Mrs. Moss currently serves as chairwoman for the Racial Equity Committee of FWISD, and, through her efforts along with the committee established a FWISD equity policy that has been cited as a model at national conferences. She led the transformation of the FWISD Board of Education to 9-single member districts.
Our mission is to provide a community that promotes accountability in achievement, equity, trust and a quality education for each learner while building meaningful and positive relationships.
