Current Committees

District Committees are advisory in nature and are made up of Frisco ISD staff, community members and parents.

Stakeholder Committee Application

FISD is looking for individuals who would like to serve on existing, new or upcoming committees developed by the district. Stakeholder input is important as we continue to build and refine the practices, policies and education of our students and community.

There is one shared application for all committees. Once staff or community members have applied to serve on a district committee, their name is placed in a pool of applicants for committee leadership to use when filling empty committee seats. Each committee has a different time frame for committee selections and their own term lengths and limits. Applicants will only be notified if they are selected to serve on a committee.  

Staff or community members interested in serving on district committees should read the descriptions for each committee and apply below.
