The pre-recorded discussion is being made available to FWISD’s respective campuses to share with their staffs on Friday, August 16.
“Convocation is a celebration of the start of a new year. Again, this year, we don’t have to all be in the same room to celebrate our commitment to our vocation. In fact, we listened to you all and heard that it is more important to give you all the gift of time at your campuses as you prepare for the new school year,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner.
Dr. Scribner and Board President Jacinto Ramos Jr. will host a panel discussion with principals Myrna Blanchard of North Hi Mount Elementary School; Whitney Scott of Eastern Hills Elementary School; Jeff Bartolotta of Kirkpatrick Middle School; and Rodrigo Durbin of South Hills High School.
