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-July 26-30, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
New Employee Orientation fulfills your Professional Learning Exchange time for the 2021-22 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. Click here for reporting times and locations.
