Fort Worth ISD Continues Wages, Sets Expectations for Employees
More than 11,500 employees of the Fort Worth Independent School District will continue to receive wages at least through May 4 under a plan authorized by Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. In turn, employees will be required to continue to report to work --either remotely from home or at a designated location.
That work includes instruction, curriculum development, staff support, maintenance and operations, food distribution, payroll, and business office functions, just to name a few.
Each employee is expected to follow the guidance of his or her supervisor. Some may be directed to work at a designated location. Those workers are reminded to practice social distancing and to follow CDC guidelines. Some hourly employees who are required to work on site will be paid at the premium rate of one and one-half times their regular pay.
All employees should be available during normal business hours or on a schedule provided by the Superintendent or his designee. If a District employee can’t work, he or she must call in an absence.
You can read the entire document outlining pay and expectations on the FWISD website. Trustees granted authority to Dr. Scribner at the March 31 Board meeting to implement procedures and to act swiftly in the best interest of the District’s students and employees.
