Welcome Eric Banfield!
We are very excited to announce the addition of Mr. Eric Banfield to our Administrative Staff! On Monday night, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the employment of Mr. Banfield as our new Business Manager. Mr. Banfield brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to FISD having worked in both small and large districts. “I have gained valuable experience in both the small school and large school environment and have found each to be rewarding. I look forward to returning to a small school environment where I am more closely connected to all aspects of the educational program and its needs.” We welcome Mr. Banfield and look forward to working with him.
We are very excited to announce the Florence ISD substitute orientation/training schedule for 2016-2017.

Both sessions will take place from 1-3 pm in the Professional Development Conference Room in the Administration Building.
Attendance at one training/orientation is required in order to substitute in Florence ISD. We will add training dates in the future to suit the needs of the district.
You will not be paid for this training, but we believe the training you receive will be very beneficial throughout the school year. Please keep in mind that Substitute Training is required annually in order for you to substitute teach in Florence ISD.
