Future-Ready Focus Areas

Future-Ready FrameworksFuture-Ready focus areas guide the work of Frisco ISD campuses in developing future-ready learners. This continuous campus improvement process helps staff identify goals and data points that can be reported each year as part of the District’s Community-Based Accountability System, which aims to demonstrate the progress of each campus in responding to the needs of students. 

The focus areas and key questions that drive this work are as follows:
