Frisco ISD to Introduce New Learning Opportunities
FISD will expand academic programming over the next few school years, delivering on goals outlined during the 2015 strategic planning process.
New courses and programs will provide additional opportunities and options for students to distinguish themselves and prepare for the future. Among them are AVID, INCubatoredu, Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Launch and if the District’s applications are accepted, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and Primary Years Programme.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to increase and enhance the learning experiences available to our students,” said Superintendent Dr. Mike Waldrip. “These programs provide additional avenues for student success, enhance college and career readiness and help meet the needs of our diverse population and community.”LEARN MORE
