FWISD DISTRICT-WIDE ONLINE REGISTRATION IS UNDERWAY
Online registration for the 2020-2021 school year has begun and registering early is more important than ever. Parents and students are being asked to choose a preference for either in-person or virtual, online learning.
All Fort Worth ISD parents can complete registration. Online registration is for all students –both new and returning – and is a “must do” in order to be enrolled in the Fort Worth ISD.
The process for returning students is fast and should take less than ten minutes to complete. Using your student’s individual Snapcode, simply go to www.fwisd.org/register, click the Returning Student registration button and confirm the information you’ve previously supplied or update any new information.
Families of new students will find the process easy as well – with instructions for uploading any necessary documents. On July 1, parents can visit www.fwisd.org/register, click the New Student registration button, and create an account.
Have a question? Call Fort Worth ISD’s Parent Information Hotline at 817-814-2070, or visit the District website at www.fwisd.org/register to read a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Now, we want to share some special details about the coming school year, so you can make an informed choice:
- Families selecting virtual instruction will experience daily teacher/student interactive lessons in each subject area.
- Internet access and a technology device (computer, Chromebook, lap top) must be available for student use daily. (It is recommended that students in middle or high school utilize their District-issued 1-to-1 Chromebook.)
- It is also recommended that the home or environment the student will engage in virtual instruction have reliable internet service.
- For elementary students who do not have a 1-to-1 device or a device in the home, FWISD will prioritize the issuance of a student Chromebook.
- Families requesting virtual instruction but who do not have reliable internet service will be prioritized for the issuance of District hot spots.
- Students will be expected to participate in virtual daily instruction with follow-up assignments.
- Students will be responsible for submitting assignments to the teacher through their virtual classroom environment.
- Grades for virtual instruction will follow all District grading policies. Numeric grades will be assigned for each 6-weeks and semester basis. There may be situations where courses selected by the student cannot be delivered in a virtual environment. In those situations, school counselors will work with the student to select an appropriate course that will be delivered virtually.
- Families who select the virtual instruction model for their student will commit to remaining in a virtual instruction setting for the entire semester.
- Families selecting in-person instruction need to be prepared for a school environment that is socially distanced, limited in movement, and differentiated in instructional delivery methods.
- Depending on classroom capacity guidance that will be released from TEA and the federal government, some classes may take place in non-traditional classroom spaces.
- Some classes will be delivered by an in-person teacher while others may be delivered by a virtual teacher. All classes will have adult staff supervision.
- Students who attend class in-person will be required to wear a face mask in all indoor environments.
- Students will not be able to congregate in large groups and will be required to adhere to the 6-foot socially distanced requirement.
- Student work spaces in classrooms will also be socially distanced at the 6-foot requirement.
- Breakfast and lunch will be served through alternative means, limiting the number of students in the cafeteria at one time.
- Restroom facilities will be monitored and cleaned on an ongoing basis and student access to facilities will need to be organized to ensure safe and healthy environments.
- In-person instruction will remain in place as a District and campus option as long as health and safety guidance allow.
- Families who select in-person learning will commit to remaining in a school setting for the entire semester. However, families electing in-person instruction must also understand that there may be the need to close schools and transition to virtual instruction for periods of time during the school year.
Online registration is a time-saving tool that can be done from the convenience of your own home, at any hour, day or night, using your smartphone, laptop, or any digital device.
