Fort Worth ISD Boundary Forums Completed

Over the last two months, Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent P. Scribner and members of his Leadership Team have conducted more than a dozen town hall meetings around the District discussing school boundaries.

As Dr. Scribner described in each of those meetings, the Fort Worth ISD has not completed a comprehensive, District-wide adjustment of school boundaries in more than twenty years. This has resulted in inefficient school pyramid patterns that don’t adequately address overcrowding, under utilization, demographic shifts, and equity for all students.

At each of the 13 town hall meetings citizens listened to District proposed options for adjusting boundaries and asked questions and shared their ideas with the superintendent and his staff. Additionally, attendees were advised they could submit comments or questions through the Let’s Talk feature on the District website.

Now that the boundary forums are complete, the District staff will study the citizen responses and work to better align school pyramids. A complete report will be presented to the Board of Education before any formal action is taken.
