FRISCO ISD NAMED TO ADVANCED PLACEMENT HONOR ROLL

More Frisco ISD students are taking, and succeeding, on Advanced Placement Exams. FISD is one of 28 Texas school districts honored by the College Board with placement on the 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll for significant gains in student performance and access to AP courses.

"This honor is a testament to the valuable work that is happening in Frisco ISD to provide access to AP courses for all students and to provide the resources and support for student success," said Amanda Dawson, senior director with The College Board.

FISD now offers a total of 31 AP classes, including AP Research, which was added for the 2017-18 school year.

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.

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.

The new zones accommodate enrollment growth and more effectively utilize building capacity across the District, delaying the need for additional new campuses.

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.
