Fort Worth ISD Forward: District Walk Seeks Unregistered FWISD Students

What: Fort Worth ISD staff and volunteers will distribute 5,000 door hangers encouraging families to register their students for the new school year, which begins September 8.

When: Saturday, August 29, 8 to 11 a.m.

Where: Neighborhood communities around the Eastern Hills High School, Dunbar High School, O.D. Wyatt High School, Southwest High School, and Western Hills High School pyramids.

Who: 100 Fort Worth ISD and community volunteers

Summary: On Saturday, August 29, from 8 to 11 a.m., more than 100 Fort Worth ISD and community volunteers will fan out across several school pyramid zones to encourage families to register their students for the new school year, which begins with virtual instruction on September 8. 

The goal is to distribute 5,000 door hangers containing information on how families can quickly and easily register their students online or at their local campus. Every returning student must be registered – and it’s very important that parents register their students now for the school year ahead.

Interested in becoming a volunteer. Sign up here today. Upon registering, volunteers will be assigned to a team and sent updates about their neighborhood assignment on Saturday. For additional information contact Mia Hall, executive director of FWISD's Equity and Excellence's  Equity and Community Initiatives, at  mia.hall@fwisd.org or by calling 817-814-2339. 

A link to the registration process may be found on the District website at www.fwisd.org/register along with helpful advice on how to complete the form. 

Volunteers will go door-to-door in the neighborhood communities around the Eastern Hills High School, Dunbar High School, O.D. Wyatt High School, Southwest High School, and Western Hills High School pyramids.

With safety being the first priority, in-person contact with residents is not expected. Participants will place the door hanger, knock, and go.
