Resurfacing Project Improves Playground Accessibility

Work is complete at the first Frisco ISD elementary schools to receive new surfacing on their outdoor playgrounds. Wood chips will be replaced with turf at all elementary campuses over the course of the school year. The project, approved by voters under the 2018 bond program, will improve safety and accessibility for students while reducing required maintenance. Each playground will be closed for two to three weeks during installation.


PGA Offers Sneak Peek at Future Home of FISD Golf

Three professional golf courses that will be used by Frisco ISD students are starting to take shape in northwest Frisco. PGA of America is moving its headquarters to a development near Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive and will bring at least 26 championships to town over a 13-year period. The courses are expected to be complete in 2022, the same year Frisco ISD plans to open its 12th high school in the area.


Free Online Tutorials Available for Many High School Courses

Frisco ISD teachers are now offering weekly online tutorials in the evenings, saving parents time and money that they might otherwise spend on outside tutors. Each content area provides an hour in the evening on one weekday and two hours one weekend a month. The online tutorials are facilitated by teachers from Reaching All Innovative Learners (RAIL), the District’s new student-centered online program that provides an opportunity for students to complete rigorous online courses at their own pace.


Frisco High Moves Closer to Authorization as IB World School

Frisco ISD will host the second of two information nights for eighth grade families next week regarding the implementation of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Any eighth grader from across the District can submit an admissions form between Nov. 1-20 to express interest in pursuing an IB diploma at Frisco High School. FISD is currently working through the authorization process and plans to offer the first IB courses to juniors in the IB programme at FHS during the 2021-22 school year. The IB Diploma Programme is a pathway of rigorous courses designed to prepare students to positively influence their community and world, while also providing college credit.
