FWISD Board To Hold Emergency Meeting

FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The Fort Worth ISD Board of Trustees will be holding an emergency meeting at 8:00 a.m. Thursday to discuss the opening of the upcoming school year.

Yesterday, Attorney General Ken Paxton issued guidance that stated that local governments do not have the authority to close school campuses to in-person learning.

That guidance puts the decision on how to open the school year back in the hands of local school boards.

The Fort Worth ISD had previously announced that it would give parents the option of whether to have their kids go to school or attend remotely.

Those wishing to offer public comment must register to do so by calling 817-814-1956 by 8:00 a.m. Thursday.
