FISD FOOTBALL TEAMS WILL BE IN TWO DISTRICTS FOR NEXT TWO SEASONS
The University Interscholastic League (UIL) has released its enrollment cutoff numbers for the 2018-2020 realignment, and although all 10 Frisco ISD high schools will be in Class 5A, they will be split into two districts for football.
The six FISD schools that will be in 5A Division I for football are Centennial, Heritage, Independence, Liberty, Lone Star and Wakeland. Frisco High, Reedy, Lebanon Trail and Memorial (opening fall of 2018) will be in 5A Division II.
The benefit of two districts for FISD football teams is that they will compete for eight playoff spots instead of four. READ MORE
ATTENDANCE ZONES SET FOR 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR
Frisco ISD finalized attendance zones for the 2018-19 school year this week, paving the way for four new schools opening in August 2018.

Approximately 3,900 current students will be affected. Of those, about 2,800 are slated to attend one of the new schools – Memorial High School, Lawler Middle School and Liscano and Talley elementary schools. SEE THE CHANGES
