FWISD Accepts Gold Seal Late Applications

Fort Worth ISD is now accepting late applications for its Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice.

The District began accepting online late applications for the 2019-2020 school year, Friday, March 1 and will receive submissions through this September. Students submitting a late application may only apply for one program.  Access the Gold Seal late application at

Because all applications are submitted online, it’s extremely important that parents have an active email address prior to starting the application process. District employees submitting applications for their own children may use their active directory login.  Families who’ve previously created an online Gold Seal account may use the same username and password to access the late application.
