Apply Today for Gold Seal Programs, Schools of Choice

Apply today for Fort Worth ISD’s 2020-2021 Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice. Applications are being online accepted through 5 p.m. Friday, December 13.

Last weekend, FWISD students and families attended the District’s two-day Choices Expo, a one-stop shopping event in which families learn how students can earn their high school diplomas, associate degrees or trade licenses and certifications simultaneously.

Families that were unable to attend the Choices Expo, November 8 and 9, still have opportunities to attend campus open houses, highlighting specific Gold Seal programs, that are being hosted at multiple FWISD schools through Thursday, November 14. On-site assistance for submitting online applications is available at these events, and Gold Seal representatives will host Application Help Date events from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. December 12-13 at Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center where families can complete online Gold Seal applications and ask questions about the process.

“They get to really see a good picture of the school and hear from students who are actually in the school and living the experience,” said Lisa Castillo, FWISD executive director of Choice and Enrichment Programming. “Here at the Gold Seal Programs of Choice Expo, parents have and students have a one-stop shop to be able to look at every single school, every program, really map out their trajectory of where they want to go, what their goals are and find the right fit got them.

“They get everything they need to be prepared for the real world.”

Families are also encouraged to reach out to their campus counselors and College and Career Readiness coordinators for assistance.
