Frisco ISD leaders are working to finalize recommendations for the 2017-18 budget, based on available resources and the District’s current operations, needs and goals. The recommendations will be the result of the collective work of the Priorities-Based Budget Stakeholder Committee, Working Group and Steering Committee. Input from parents, staff and community members has been critical in helping FISD better align priorities with spending.

Budget Principles

  • Ensure development and maintenance of the instructional program at the highest possible level of excellence while addressing the needs created by growth in the student population

  • Allocate personnel units in a manner that will maintain the effective and efficient practices adopted by the District

  • Prioritize the distribution of funds to address the needs of the District in relation to both the academic and operational functions of the District

  • Meet the community standards and goals and objectives adopted by the Board of Trustees

  • Maintain the District's efforts to continue as one of the top-rated school districts in the state

Budget Goals & Vision

  • A successful priorities-based budget process will result in a balanced and sustainable budget that is aligned with the District’s mission to know every student by name and need.

  • Throughout this process, our focus will be on student learning and we will be cautious not to be short-sighted in the long-term impact of our decisions.

  • FISD will build support for this initiative with staff and the community by listening, encouraging input and maintaining transparency.

  • As a District, our priorities are to:

    • Recruit, retain and support an effective teacher in every classroom and an effective principal in every school.

    • Protect the classroom by guiding and supporting high levels of learning for all students.

    • Commit to the whole child by providing social, emotional, physical and academic support.

    • Provide a safe, secure and well-maintained learning environment.

    • Continue to maximize student opportunities through the small schools model.

  • As part of the budget development process, we will work to reduce or eliminate spending in areas that do not align with our identified priorities.
