Fort Wayne Community Schools staff members will be covering the city Thursday, June 14, visiting homes throughout the district from 4:30-7:30 p.m. The door-to-door campaign is designed to reach out to families during the summer to say hello and to remind them to complete online pre-registration.

This is the seventh year FWCS staff has visited families at their homes during the summer.

“The day we go door-to-door throughout the city is always a fun day,” said Superintendent Dr. Wendy Robinson. “Our staff members enjoy getting out to see our families; and the children love to see their teachers, assistants and principals arrive at their house. We are a part of this community, and we want to make sure our families don’t feel forgotten during the summer months.”

The door-to-door campaign will kick off from each Fort Wayne Community Schools high school (Northrop, North Side, Snider, South Side and Wayne) at 4:15 p.m.  

Online pre-registration is available to current families through July 8 via the MyFWCS parent portal on the FWCS website, www.fortwayneschools.org. Families will still need to attend in-school registration, but if they complete the pre-registration online, they will be able to go through the Rapid Registration line. In-school registration will be from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, July 27, and noon-7 p.m. Monday, July 30. Parents will need to bring a photo ID and two proofs of residence. New families can register any time at the Family & Community Engagement Center.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana. FWCS proudly allows families to choose any of its 50 schools through its successful school-choice program creating diversity in each school, including some with more than 75 languages spoken. FWCS offers seven magnet schools focusing on areas such as science and math, communication, fine arts or Montessori at the elementary and middle school level. In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
