The number one reason teachers leave our schools is compensation. Because we are a charter school, we do not have access to funding streams that public ISDs have, and as a result, do not have the same pay scales other districts do. A starting salary at FWAFA and TeSA is approximately $13,000 less than a starting salary at FWISD.
For the months of April and May, we fundraised to create a Faculty Fund for both FWAFA and TeSA. The money raised will go directly to our deserving teachers.
Thank you to our donors for showing our wonderful faculty that we support and admire all the hard work they do. All donors will be recognized online and will be named in a special thank you card to each staff member.
On behalf of our students, teachers, and staff here at Texas Center for Arts + Academics, thank you for your support. It is because of donors like you that we are able to do so much of what makes our programs the best in Fort Worth.
