Preparing for Orientation
- Sign-up for New Hire Orientation here. New Hire Orientation is mandatory for all NISD Employees, the date/time of your orientation is your choice, but you must attend an orientation. There are 2 sessions to choose from: 8:30am to 11:30am OR 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Choose only ONE session.
- Complete the NISD On-Boarding Packet, sent to your personal email address from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reach out to HR if you have not received your On-Boarding Packet.
- Submit a photo for your NISD badge. If you are having trouble uploading a photo, please reach out to the Safety and Security Department at email@example.com for assistance. Your badge will be given to you at New Hire Orientation.
- If your position requires a personal technology device, you will be able to pick that up and complete your initial login at New Hire Orientation. Technology staff will be on site 30 minutes prior to New Hire Orientation check-in to issue devices.
- Attempt to login and activate your NISD credentials. An email with instructions was sent to your personal email address, if you have issues logging in, please reach out to our Helpdesk at 817-698-1000.
- Complete the “Get to Know” questionnaire. This short questionnaire has been requested by our Superintendent, Dr. Hicks, so that he gets a chance to get to know you before you join us for Orientation.
- Seating is limited to Northwest ISD New Hire’s ONLY; please no guests.
- Northwest ISD Admin Building is not equipped to safely accommodate children in our facility. Please help us ensure the safety of your children by making other arrangements for their care/supervision.
- Business Casual attire is expected.
What to Bring
- YOURSELF in business casual attire.
- TWO forms of valid Identification to finish out your I-9 Documentation. View details for what are considered acceptable forms of identification. We highly recommend utilizing the LINK to ensure that you do not have to come back to the Administration Building to present proper documentation a second time.
- If you have sealed, enveloped, official copies of your Transcripts, you may bring those with you to New Hire Orientation where an HR staff member will open them, scan them, and return them to you.
- If you have official Service Records, please bring those with you and an HR staff member will scan them and return them to you.
- New Hire Orientation attendance is mandatory and you must attend one of the specified dates.
- District issued laptops will be distributed 30 minutes before New Hire Orientation for all Professionals and for Paraprofessionals working in a Special Education classroom.
- NISD will offer several training sessions throughout the summer that require a district issued laptop so it is best to attend orientation at your earliest convenience as district devices are not distributed prior to your chosen orientation date.
- New Hire Orientation is not the same as New Teacher Training.
- If you have any questions, contact Taylor Pavey at 817-215-0143 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
