FISD values its many community partners for their ongoing support of the District, our schools and students. To learn more about ways to get involved, contact the Frisco Education Foundation or the Partners in Education program.
Distribution of Non-School Materials
The District website and our eNewsletter to parents and the community are the only distribution locations for non-school related information from outside/third party groups/organizations/businesses to FISD students and parents. Information should be youth or family oriented.
Items posted in the Community Folder area of the website are subject to review and approval based on Board Policy GKDA (Local). For-profit groups will be required to make a $50 donation to the Frisco Education Foundation before postings are approved. This electronic Community Folder page is linked to our campus websites and communications will be sent out to remind people to visit the site. You may submit information online for the Community Folder. Please contact Dafne Rodriquez in the Communications Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 469.633.6004 for more information.
Sponsor our eNewsletter
In addition, outside groups may also help sponsor the distribution of our external eNewsletter, which is sent twice a month during the school year to approximately 90,000 email addresses of FISD parents and community members.
Local businesses and organizations may wish to utilize this opportunity to promote an upcoming event or provide information regarding services offered. Sponsors may place one image, sized 580 x 220 pixels, in the eNewsletter and/or The Beat. The image will be linked to a URL of your choice with up to 550 characters of optional marketing copy.

Note: Posting of any advertisement and links to other sites where goods or services are advertised does not reflect the viewpoints of FISD or an endorsement from the District of the advertiser, or of the product or service involved.
Connect with Employees
Businesses wanting to distribute information to FISD employees about special discounts or services should contact the Communications Office. The District maintains an internal website for employees that allows us to host information of interest to District personnel. FISD employee mailboxes, workrooms and email accounts are not utilized for distribution of this type of information, though employees do receive an email each week that includes a featured deal and reminder about where to find all offers from area businesses. Please contact Whitney Wilson in the Communications Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 469.633.6000 for more information.
Fundraising opportunities that a business would like to make available to schools can be distributed through the Communications Office. Following District guidelines, individual schools and PTAs make decisions regarding fundraising efforts for school benefit or for a charitable endeavor.
Signage at FISD Schools
FISD can allow Frisco/city-based sports teams to place signs at the schools to announce registration dates for youth athletic activities. Leaders must contact the Communications Office for permission and to get an approval letter to take to the campus, by providing an electronic copy of the artwork that will be displayed. Signs should be no larger than 18x24. No more than 4 signs (total from any sources) can be at a school at any one time and they cannot be displayed for more than 7 days prior to the registration date and must be taken up within 48 hours after. The signs must be picked up at the end of this time, or the school will dispose of them. Abuse of this process could jeopardize an organization's ability to place signs at the schools in the future. Signs can also be erected for school-related information or events at the school. See the city of Frisco sign ordinance for more information. Please contact Erin French in the Communications Office at email@example.com or 469.633.6060 for more information.
Additionally, FISD schools in the city of Frisco must follow the rules found in the city's sign ordinance and the sign ordinance amendment.
