STEM Integration Builds Future-Ready Skills


FISD Adds New Courses in Growing Career Fields

Frisco ISD high school students will have three more choices to consider as they make course selections for next school year. The District will add Advanced Video Game Programming and Cybersecurity at the Career and Technical Education Center, as well as Gifted and Talented American Studies at all ten high schools.

“These courses broaden student opportunity while preparing students for future-focused careers in areas of strong personal interest,” said Katie Kordel, chief academic officer.


Fifty-Five High School Students Named to All-State Ensembles

Congratulations to band, jazz band, choir and orchestra students from across the District who were selected to participate in one of the 2019 Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) All-State Ensembles. Following a highly competitive audition process, students will get the opportunity to learn and perform under the direction of world-renowned conductors at the TMEA Convention, scheduled Feb. 13-16 in San Antonio.


Federal Employees Encouraged to Apply for Meal Benefits

Any change in household income can impact a student’s eligibility for free or reduced meals at school. Parents furloughed by the federal government or working without pay are encouraged to apply for meal benefits. Once eligibility is determined, students can receive free or reduced lunch and breakfast for the remainder of the school year.

Remember, Frisco ISD staff is always available to help your family through difficult or challenging times, regardless of the circumstance. Talk to your school counselor about resources available in FISD and through community partners.
