Dr. Scribner Invites You To Attend An Information Meeting

Posted by Fort Worth ISD on 10/23/2020 5:00:00 PM

Dear Fort Worth ISD Employees,

 

As you may have heard, the Fort Worthtre ISD Board of Trustees approved a Voter Approval Tax Ratification Election (TRE) on November 3.

Superintendent Kent P. Scribner would like the opportunity to present additional information on the TRE. You are encouraged and invited to attend a virtual presentation.

There are several opportunities to join one between now and Thursday, October 29.

To find a time most convenient to you, please visit our Eventbrite page and look on the right hand side of the screen for the Select a date bar in red.

>> Watch the video where Dr. Scribner answers essential questions about the TRE.

>> Register and receive access to the information meeting.

If voters approve the new tax rate it will result in an additional $44M for the District and the state would also give us 50-cents on the dollar, resulting in revenues of $66M.

That money would fund:

  • Increased compensation for teachers allowing the District to be more competitive in attracting and retaining the best teachers and providing incentives for those who will work in the schools where they are needed most
  • Safety, health, and security by providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and additional measures to clean and sanitize campuses
  • Connectivity and devices such as Chromebook computers, hot spots and additional methods to provide broadband internet access for students
