District Reacts to Microsoft Outage

In the last 24 hours you may have experienced issues with signing on to several important Fort Worth ISD sites or programs. The problem has been a nation-wide outage at Microsoft. Much of the trouble happened Monday afternoon and evening.

Our asynchronous model of instruction allows for assignments to be submitted at any point in the day. However, because of the outage, this was not an option for many students and their families. 

As a result of the outage students are allowed to complete and submit yesterday’s (Monday, September 28) assignments today without penalty. All student engagement will be recorded, for both yesterday and today, to reflect the trouble of trying to access the systems.
