Congratulations to Our Campus Teachers of the Year!

There is no greater asset in Frisco ISD than the teachers who directly impact students every single day. This year, teachers have taken on additional responsibilities as they address the academic and social-emotional needs of students both in-person and virtually. Frisco ISD is proud to honor the 72 educators chosen by their peers and supervisors as their Campus Teacher of the Year. These outstanding teachers will be considered for District-wide honors this spring.


Students Achieve Top Scores on SAT and ACT

Fourteen students have joined the prestigious list of FISD students who have scored the highest possible composite scores on either the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. The Class of 2021 is the tenth consecutive class to have students who will graduate with top scores, which account for less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take these exams. On average, FISD students outpace their counterparts in Texas and across the country on both the ACT and SAT.


FISD Updates Quarantine Period for Close Contacts

Frisco ISD is revising its required quarantine period for individuals who came into close contact with a positive case of COVID-19. Close contacts will now be required to quarantine for 10 days from the last date of close contact rather than 14 days. The change is based on additional guidance from the CDC and local health authorities, as well as continued evidence that there is not significant spread of the virus occurring on FISD campuses, though gatherings outside of school have impacted the number of infections involving students and staff.


District Vertical Art Shows Go Virtual

Frisco ISD students and teachers continue to evolve and thrive, and the annual FISD Vertical Art Show is no different. The annual visual arts show celebrates the immense talent and creativity of students across the District. Typically, hundreds of children and their parents gather with District staff in the hallways and foyer of the District administration building where art is displayed and organized by campus. Due to social-distancing guidelines, this year’s art shows will be held virtually. Check out the art from students who attend schools in the first featured feeder patterns, Lebanon Trail and Liberty high schools, and look for artwork coming from other campuses after the New Year!
