Welcome to Forney ISD!
We are so happy you've decided to join our #ForneyFamily. Below, please find information and resources to help you make a smooth transition to our district.
New Employee Orientation
Details regarding New Employee Orientation are still in the works, but for now, please hold July 27 - July 31 on your calendar. More information will be posted here as it is available.
New Employee Orientation fulfills your Professional Learning Exchange time for the 2020-21 school year, which allows you to be off for Fall Break in October without being docked. For this reason, it is critical that you 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 Employee Orientation, please complete this form after you have communicated the conflict with your supervisor. We will follow-up with further information about the availability of make-ups or materials in the coming weeks.
