FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The Fort Worth Independent School District is growing so fast that they’ve added an online tool to help direct parents to the right campus.

Parents can just type in their home address and the tool will reveal which school their kids will be going to.

“This is something we call the “School Locator” and it’s convenient, it’s easy to use, it’s just a click away,” said Fort Worth ISD spokesperson Clint Bond. “On the left-hand side, under ‘Spotlights’, you’ll see ‘Find Your Child’s School’.”

Parents aren’t the only ones benefiting from the new tool; Bond says it’s taking a load off of district employees as well.

“People would call up, we had this big book of addresses, and we’d have to go through it,” he recalled. “Now people can do it on their own, from the convenience of their own home.”

The new online tool not only gives parents the address of their child’s school, but also will show them how to get there. “There’s even driving directions, how to get from your address to that particular school,” explained Bond.
