Pick your pathway!
Learn about Fort Worth ISD’s Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice at expo and open house events this November.
Students and families may explore pathways to colleges and careers at the annual Choices Expo, as well as school and neighborhood open house events. More than 12,700 postcards were mailed to families with fifth- and eighth-grade children recently with information.
Students can begin submitting online applications for FWISD’s Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice, Friday November 8. Because all applications are submitted online, it’s extremely important that parents have an active email address prior to starting the application process. District employees submitting applications for their own children may use their active directory login.
Online Gold Seal applications are due no later than 5 p.m. Friday, December 13.
Fifth and eighth-grade presentations are currently underway at schools across the District where students are viewing video overviews of the 2020-2021 Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice catalog in campus assemblies, receiving information about important upcoming Gold Seal events and having opportunities to get questions answered about the program offerings. The presentations continue through Thursday, November 7.
“Industry-driven Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice offer Fort Worth ISD families and students the power of choice now more than ever to go beyond the basic, beyond the traditional, to find the pathway that’s a match to a student’s interest, goals and learning style,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner.
