FORT WORTH ISD TRUSTEES DECIDE TO DELAY OPENING OF SCHOOL UNTIL SEPTEMBER 8

The Fort Worth ISD Board of Education today voted 8 to 1 to delay the opening of the 2020-21 school year until September 8 and then to offer online, at home learning only for the first four weeks, embracing a “safety first” measure for students and employees during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Then, following the four weeks of online instruction, trustees will again evaluate the public health crisis and the trajectory of COVID-19 cases.

“Our Board strongly supports and prioritizes the health and safety of our children and employees,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. “Our goal is to get students back in school when it is safe to do so.”

The decision came at the end of an emergency meeting that began at 8 a.m. and lasted until 1:30 p.m. Trustees heard public comment for two hours from nearly 70 individuals then went into executive session to seek legal advice regarding recent guidance from Texas Education Agency in light of the current public health crisis.

“Educators are being asked to solve a public health problem. We have a great responsibility in this moment. We pledge not only to continue educating ALL of our children, but commit that we will do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our employees as well as the students and families we all serve,” Dr. Scribner continued.

Today’s action follows a series of changing directives from local and state authorities.

“We are adapting to both changing public health conditions and changing guidance from state agencies,” Dr. Scribner said.

The District had originally planned to begin the school year on August 17 and had offered parents the opportunity to choose either virtual or in-person instruction for their students.

However, last week Tarrant County public health officials ordered that all public and private schools to operate virtually until September 28.

Then, on Tuesday of this week Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote an opinion that local health officials do not have the authority to stop in-person learning.

TEA Commissioner Mike Morath withdrew his agency’s previous guidance regarding school openings and local health authorities’ directives. The TEA did specify districts could open schools with a transition period of online instruction for four weeks.

As has been the practice for recent meetings, this was a virtual meeting with all Board members being in different remote locations. Here is the agenda.

This Week Marks End of Four-Day Summer Work Schedule

Fort Worth ISD’s four-day summer workweek officially ends Friday, July 31. That day marks the final Friday administrative offices are closed this summer.

The District will resume normal business hours and a five-day workweek -- 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday -- on Monday, August 3. District facilities will remain closed to the general public, and visitors will be seen by appointment only to practice safe social distancing.

Teachers will soon participate in professional learning to prepare for the new school year. Educators new to the profession and the District (0-1 year) will report to professional learning on campus, while teachers with two or more years experience with the District will participate in virtual professional learning sessions.

The Board of Education voted 8-1 today to push the start date for FWISD’s 2020-2021 academic year back to Tuesday, September 8. The first four weeks of school, when school begins September 8, will take place virtually.

New Teacher Academy Begins August 24

Fort Worth ISD New Teacher Academy for 2020-2021 is set for August 24-28, 2020 and will be a virtual professional learning experience. Training is for new teachers and teachers new to Fort Worth ISD. More information will be shared soon.

Open Enrollment Sessions By Phone Start August 6

Insurance benefits open enrollment sessions start for Fort Worth ISD employees via phone, Thursday, August 6. Employees will have a designated day to learn about the benefits available to them, ask questions and receive assistance completing enrollment based on FWISD’s geographic districts and departments.

Assigned open enrollment sessions are scheduled for FWISD schools and departments through August 18. Make–up sessions are scheduled August 19-21 for employees who miss their designated open enrollment session date.

Employees may enroll for the 2020-2021 benefits at www.mybenefitshub.com/fortworthisd through Friday, August 21, 2020. Coverage changes take effect September 1.

FWISD Employees may notice a few changes this enrollment year:

  • Health plans will change from Aetna to Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Benefits officials say the health plans are comparable with last year’s plans.
  • The new TRS-Active Care Primary plan offers lower premiums and copays
  • All employees will receive new identification cards for health benefits
  • Life insurance benefits for all active employees who pay into TRS will increase from $5,000 to $15,000

“To stay compliant with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), all employees should take action to either enroll, opt to keep the same coverage (with changes to the plans from Aetna to Blue Cross/ Blue Shield) or decline health coverage,” according to a recent letter sent to employees by the Benefits Department.

Employees currently enrolled that don’t wish to maintain health coverage beyond August 31 “are required to decline coverage during Benefits Open Enrollment or will have the same coverage as in the 2019-2020 school year.”

The 2019-2020 enrollment year nearly 7,300 enrolled for health benefits.

Employees will also notice that information needed for logging in to enroll for benefits is different this year. Instructions for logging in to enroll, and additional benefits information were emailed to FWISD employees in a July 15 letter.

Benefits officials say there will be no increases to vision, dental, disability or term life insurance premiums (other than the age bracket increases for term life and disability).

For additional details about insurance coverage available for the upcoming year, text “FBS FWISD” to the number 313131.

FWISD employees with benefits questions are encouraged to email Benefits@fwisd.org or call the Benefits office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 817-814-2240.

FORT WORTH ISD CELEBRATES 2019-2020 SCHOLAR ATHLETES

Annually, the Fort Worth ISD honors its Scholar Athletes at a Board of Education meeting in May. Because of the disruption of the spring semester, the public recognition of those students was not possible. However, the District is now honoring their achievements by sharing their names, sports and grade point averages on our website at www.fwisd.org .

Originally called the Academic Athlete Award, the Fort Worth ISD Scholar Athlete recognition was originated in 1984 by then-Board Trustee Dr. T.A. Sims. Dr. Sims saw a need to recognize outstanding athletes for their work in the classroom as well as on the playing field.

Now in its 36th year, the Scholar Athlete program recognizes student athletes from each middle and high school in the District. Two students – one male and one female –are chosen on the basis of their grade point average (GPA) and their athletic participation, with an emphasis on the GPA. The criteria for the award are that the individuals recognized should have the highest GPA amongst all student athletes of their gender, at grade level, at a campus.
