Welcome to Forney ISD!
We are so happy you've decided to join our #ForneyFamily. This page provides information to help make a smooth transition.
New Employee Orientation
New Teacher Week is July 25-29, 2022, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. While you may be dismissed prior to 5 pm on some days, please make arrangements to be ready to go at 8am and stay until 5 pm. There will be instructions for sign in each day so that we can accurately record your session attendance and credit your days. If you will be unable to attend any part of New Teacher Orientation, please communicate your conflict to your principal/supervisor and then complete a form which can be accessed by clicking here. While efforts will be made to help those who have to miss part of new teacher week get "caught up," formal, complete make-up sessions are not being provided. Absences will result in a reduction in overall pay. New teachers will receive direct communications via email regarding when and where to report. That information will also be posted on this page when arrangements are finalized. Participation is important in facilitating the smoothest and most effective transition possible.
