FWISD Gold Seal Notifications Go Out This Week

(Friday, January 15, 2021) --

Fort Worth ISD students who submitted a 2021-2022 Gold Seal Schools and Programs of Choice application are receiving acceptance  notifications via email this week. The notices went out on Thursday, January 14. 

The email has instructions for accessing Gold Seal lottery results. Admission into Gold Seal programs and schools is based on a computer-generated lottery selection process conducted earlier this month. Parents are encouraged to check their Spam and Junk mail if the notification does not appear in the email account used to apply

Students assigned to a Program/School of Choice will also receive details for how to complete registration documents virtually for the program via Google Docs. Applicants have until January 25 to complete and submit their registration documents. Failure to complete all registration documents forfeits the child’s space in the program, according to Program of Choice officials.

Students not selected to their first choice will be placed on a waiting list for that choice unless the choice is Arlington Heights High School Dance Program of Choice, the Young Women’s Leadership Academy or the I.M. Terrell Academy for Visual and Performing Arts. Applicants not identified as eligible through the screening process for these three programs will be placed on a waiting list for their second choice.

The District will accept late applications to programs and schools with available spaces beginning next month.

Fort Worth ISD’s Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice appeal to student interests and passions and equip students with skills to thrive in college and the workforce. The rigorous program categories include aviation, cybersecurity, cosmetology, fine arts, STEM, Early College High School, P-TECH (Pathways in Technology) and much more. These academic pathways allow students to complete high school college-and-career-ready and with opportunities to obtain multiple college credits, professional licensures and certifications.
