Now is the time to register for a series of training sessions that teach residents to draw maps that will add two new Fort Worth council districts.

There will be two types of training:

  • Basic training. This training is for anyone who would like to learn how to use the redistricting software or who has started to use it and needs some extra help.
  • Advanced and collaboration sessions. This training is for anyone who is ready for advanced training. Residents are also welcome to attend these sessions to provide input on proposed maps, even if they do not choose to draw a map themselves.

To make sure enough staff is scheduled at each session, registration is required. Registration closes at noon the day of each training session ; if there are no registrants, a class will be canceled.

All training will take place 6-8 p.m. Here is the schedule and the links to registration for each class :
