About Fort Worth Independent School District

Preparing ALL students for success in college, career, and community leadership.

With more than 73,000 students in 82 elementary schools, 24 middle schools and 6th grade centers, 21 high schools and 16 other campuses, Fort Worth ISD enjoys a diverse student population and strong community partnerships. Under the leadership of the superintendent and Board of Education, the District is undergoing a series of initiatives that will redesign, transform, and revitalize Fort Worth ISD Schools.

In Fort Worth, the district, community organizations, and individuals come together and listen and learn with the goal of improving student outcomes in every school in every zip code. Among them:

A groundbreaking partnership with Texas Wesleyan University that allows the District’s five Leadership Academies to sustain recent academic gains

An all-hands-on-deck push for Pre-K and Kindergarten that includes online registration drives, door-to-door v
isits, and strategic social media ads to give as many children as possible a great start to their education journey.

Fort Worth ISD and the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce have created a partnership that encompasses Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice, Career and Technical Education, Vital Link, and elementary school initiatives. The relationship serves as a model for other schools districts partnering with their chambers of commerce. The goal is to develop a diverse talent pipeline for Fort Worth employers while connecting FWISD students to post-secondary education and career pathways. The success of this program will help provide Fort Worth with a highly-prepared work force and make the city an attractive location for both existing and new and businesses.

Read Fort Worth provided difference-making initiatives such as an expanded Classroom Library Campaign. Originally meant to provide classroom library sets for Pre-K to secondgrade classes in about 20 schools, the campaign is now outfitting every elementary school in the District. The Fort Worth business community contributed more than $100,000 to the campaign, and the Rainwater Charitable Foundation matched that amount. These projects are the reason Read Fort Worth unveiled “Mobilizing the Next Phase: Our Collective Journey to 100x25.” Under the direction of Superintendent Scribner, Mayor Betsy Price, and Read Fort Worth chairman Matt Rose, the unprecedented coalition of business, civic, education, philanthropic, nonprofit and volunteer leaders is working to ensure that 100 percent of Fort Worth third-graders are reading at grade level or above by 2025.
