Survey Results Aid in Planning for 2020-21 School Year

More than 16,000 parents responded to a survey seeking input on their preferences for the 2020-21 school year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. When asked to choose between three options, 44% of parents favored starting school normally with additional safety and health measures in place, while 33% were interested in a blended approach of in-person classes and online instruction and 22% favored eLearning. The District has not determined the format of instruction for next school year, and leaders will consider survey results as they weigh recommendations from the state. The School Board will discuss planning and preparation for the 2020-21 school year during a special meeting that will be livestreamed online starting at 5 p.m. tonight.

Options Available for Credits in Online School Fees

Due to cancelled events this spring, many FISD families have had credits issued back to them in Online School Fees, the online payment system for specific programs, courses and activities. Those balances will automatically carry forward and remain available to be used in the future for any student associated with an account. If you do not wish to carry your credit balance forward, you can request a refund, transfer the balance to your student's meal account or donate the balance to the Frisco ISD Child Nutrition Department to help feed students in need. The request form at the link below will be open through June 15 to make one of those choices. If you request a refund, please allow 4-8 weeks processing time.
