The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees approved several changes to school attendance zones that will go into effect for the start of the 2018-19 school year.
The zones determine which schools students attend based on their address. Each fall, the District reviews attendance zones and proposes changes as necessary to accommodate enrollment growth and more effectively utilize building capacity across the District.
FISD added approximately 2,500 students between October 2016 and October 2017 and is projected to add another 2,000 students by October 2018.
The District will open four new schools in fall 2018 to provide overcrowding relief, including Memorial High School, Lawler Middle School and Liscano and Talley elementary schools.
The new zones create attendance boundaries for the four new schools and balance enrollment at another 23 existing campuses to promote student opportunity, long-term stability and effective utilization of space.
Approximately 3,900 current students will be affected by the rezoning. Of those, about 2,800 are slated to attend one of the four new schools.
Student transfers will be available to elementary campuses projected at less than 90 percent of capacity.
Where possible, the Board also approved exceptions for students who will be in fifth or eighth grade next year to allow them to finish their elementary or middle-school years at their current campus. These include:
- Fifth graders rezoned from Sem to Tadlock Elementary
- Fifth graders rezoned from Mooneyham to Liscano Elementary
- Eighth graders rezoned from Fowler to Clark Middle School
- Eighth graders rezoned from Trent to Staley Middle School
- Eighth graders rezoned from Scoggins to Vandeventer Middle School
Parents of students impacted by rezoning have been notified of the approved zones and any exceptions available via email.
