Fort Worth ISD's Bookmobile
Be on the lookout for this bright spot on our busy streets. It’s the new Fort Worth ISD Parents as Teachers Bookmobile, wrapped in District colors and hitting the road for the 2016-17 school year.
The Bookmobile was part of a grant awarded to our Parents as Teachers program from Texas Health and Human Services for the Texas Home Visiting Program. The funding allowed the District to brand the vehicle so parents and families would see this as a trusted source of educational resources in the community.
As a traveling early literacy center, the Bookmobile will help many more children prepare for kindergarten, start school at grade level, and stay on track. It’s loaded with books and other educational materials. It’s also outfitted with WiFi to provide Internet access. All books that are checked out can be returned to any Fort Worth ISD school library. Parents will find the Bookmobile a convenient place to sign up for digital tools to help them in their role as their child’s first teacher.
