Professional Learning

Professional learning in Frisco ISD is aligned with the Future Ready Framework and focuses on learning, collaboration and results. Learning is an intentional, ongoing and systemic process aligned with district, campus and individual goals that impact student learning. A successful continuous improvement cycle is dependent on student achievement results that serve as evidence of professional growth; these results may also identify opportunities for additional professional learning.

  • Individual Personalized Professional Learning

      • Accountability is measured in outcomes and growth over time
