Frisco ISD Responds to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Frisco ISD continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The District receives regular updates and guidance from Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath and other local, state and federal agencies regarding response, prevention and mitigation efforts. This direction has changed repeatedly over the last several months and will continue to evolve based on COVID-19 conditions across the state and our local community.
2020-2021 School Year Commitment Form
FISD will offer both on-campus instruction and virtual instruction, also called Virtual Academy, during the 2020-21 school year. Parents will have the option to choose which model is best for their students.
A commitment form is being sent via email to the primary parent or guardian contact for each registered Frisco ISD student on Monday, June 29. Please note it may take up to 24 hours for the system to process such a large volume of emails. Parents should use the form to communicate plans for each student by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 10. If the District does not receive a commitment form for a student by July 10, it will be automatically assumed that the student will attend on-campus classes.
This timely feedback is critical to FISD in preparing for the first day of school on August 13. The District must have data to work with when planning for master schedules, classroom space, the new Virtual Academy and how we can best meet the social-emotional needs of students when they return.
Frisco ISD understands that family sentiments may change as COVID-19 conditions evolve or if the District has to adjust its plans based on new insight or clarity from the state. As a result, FISD will allow parents to change their students' learning model after the school year begins. The District will communicate this process at a later time.
