Summer Projects Enhance Student Opportunity
Construction and technology crews are hard at work on projects designed to enhance the learning environment and opportunities for students.
Of the 2018 bond projects, Frisco ISD was able to move most quickly with planning, design and installation of artificial turf on baseball and softball fields at three high schools, as well as the creation of new parking and paved practice areas for marching band at nine high schools.
More than a dozen campuses will also begin the new school year with a higher ratio of new computers and mobile devices, increasing students’ access to technology. The new standard will be rolled out District-wide over the next few years as aging technology is replaced. READ MORE

In addition to meal payments, SchoolCafé will also host breakfast and lunch menus, nutrition information and the application for free and reduced meals. Parents will also be able to manage balances, as well as their student’s purchase restrictions and preferences online or via the SchoolCafé mobile app. LEARN MORE
Secondary Grades Coming Every Nine Weeks This Year
Middle and high school students will have more time in the coming year to show what they know. The District will move to nine-week reporting periods at the secondary level as opposed to the previous six-week periods. The shift gives teachers more time to assess a student’s grasp of concepts, including greater ability to reteach or reassess as necessary. READ MORE
