What is an 1882 partnership?
In 2017, the Texas Legislature signed SB 1882 into effect. SB 1882 incentivizes districts to work collaboratively with new and existing partners to promote innovation and dramatically improve student outcomes. These “Texas Partnerships” offer districts the opportunity to expand the diversity of school options, bring in targeted expertise for innovation and turnaround support, and empower school leaders and partners with greater autonomy. In 2019, FWISD selected TXWES to formalize, sustain, and support the successful Leadership Academy model established by the district. Guided by contractual performance targets and defined autonomies, TXWES and FWISD share oversight responsibilities through their distinct roles.
What is the enrollment process?
The Leadership Academy Network campuses are FWISD schools. Each school supports the local surrounding community and enrollment eligibility is determined by residency within the geographic boundaries aligned with current district attendance zones. Our enrollment/registration process is 100% online and access can be found at: https://www.fwisd.org/registration
Is this a charter school?
This partnership creates a unique in-district relationship that leverages the resources of Fort Worth ISD in conjunction with Texas Wesleyan University. There is no involvement by existing for-profit or non-profit charter management organizations.
Is there a tuition fee or entrance exam?
No, we do not charge tuition nor administer entrance examinations. Our six campuses are public, FWISD schools.
