Early Voting Underway in Bond and Tax Ratification Election

Early voting began Monday in this fall’s midterm election and two Frisco ISD propositions appear on the ballot. The bond and TRE would provide funding to address recommendations made by the Facilities & Programs Evaluation Committee, an advisory group of FISD parents, community members, employees and students. Neither proposition will impact the total 2018 tax rate, which is two cents lower than the tax rate from 2012 to 2017.

Watch the video to learn more about the ballot language voters will see at the polls. Early voting runs through Nov. 2. Election Day is Nov. 6.

The Board of Trustees approved the calendar for the 2019-20 school year at its regular October meeting. The first day of school will be Thursday, Aug. 15.


FISD Celebrates 60,000th Student

Frisco ISD marked another milestone in its fast growth earlier this month at Pioneer Heritage Middle School. School Board members joined Superintendent Mike Waldrip and Principal Rocky Agan in welcoming the District’s 60,000th student and her family. Sixth grader Alanna Mazeffa recently moved to Frisco from Pittsburgh, Pa.

Now the fourth largest school district in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and 13th largest school district in Texas, FISD is projected to add between approximately 1,400-2,100 students each year for the next five years.


FISD Receives Highest Possible Financial Accountability Rating

The Texas Education Agency has awarded Frisco ISD with an A or Superior rating for financial management for the 2017 fiscal year. Created by the 77th Texas Legislature in 2001, the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) is designed to encourage public schools to better manage their financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes.


Develop the Whole Child

Frisco ISD is committed to supporting students’ social, emotional and mental health needs. Each month, teachers share lessons with students to help them develop important life skills and positive character traits.

During the month of October, the focus has been on self-control and how students' words and actions can impact themselves and others. Students who display self-control come to class prepared, resist procrastination and see the connection between today’s behaviors and tomorrow’s goals.
