Frisco ISD Virtual School
All Students Will Attend Classes In Person
Frisco ISD announced June 8, 2021 that it is unable to move forward with a virtual learning option for students in the 2021-22 school year. All students will attend classes on campus starting with the first day of the new school year on Thursday, August 12.
The District had intended to launch a permanent Virtual School to serve students in grades 3-12 starting in fall 2021. But after the regular session of the Texas Legislature ended on May 31 without final approval of a bill that would have expanded online learning in Texas and provided funding for full-time virtual students, FISD had no choice but to put these plans on hold.
Expanded opportunities for students through online and blended learning was a priority for Frisco ISD prior to the pandemic and will continue to be a priority for the District in the future. As many families have discovered, online learning offers students additional choice and flexibility and is preferred by some for a variety of reasons. Frisco ISD looks forward to future action by the state that would allow FISD to make this opportunity available to students who choose it.
