Superintendent Search

Frisco ISD Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Lyon announced his retirement March 17 after 31 years in public education, more than four in FISD. His last day with the District is June 30, 2017.

On April 10, trustees selected Jenny Preston Educational Consulting to guide them through the process for selecting a new superintendent of schools. Dr. Jenny Preston is a former superintendent in Allen ISD who also assisted the District with its strategic planning process in 2015. She brings a wealth of knowledge of FISD and the area and experience with superintendent searches with the firm Horn, Smith, Wood & Preston. Dr. John Horn, former Mesquite ISD superintendent, will assist with recruiting candidates for the position.
