Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Tuesday Report, our lede details a path forward for Fort Worth ISD after the pandemic. During a Read Fort Worth event Monday,  Superintendent Kent Scribner talked with outgoing Mayor Betsy Price about the high price students paid for being forced out of the classroom and about how the district and the city plan to work together to play catch-up over the summer. Reporter Jacob Sanchez shares their thoughts.
