Gold Seal Programs Applications Available

 

How to Apply

For your convenience, apply online www.fwisd.org/choice. If you have more than one child, complete an online application for each child applying for a Program of Choice or School of Choice. A working email address is required to complete the online application. The email address should be a family email address that is checked regularly. It cannot be a student’s FWISD email address (stu.org) assigned to them by the district. Falsifying information on the Choices application will invalidate it, and the student’s application will be excluded from the selection process.
