Follow What’s Happening This Spring in Austin

The 87th Session of the Texas Legislature is underway, and there are already encouraging signs for public education. Many legislators have indicated their commitment to adequate funding for Texas schools, and the proposed budget laid out in Senate Bill 1 includes $65.4 billion in public education funding for the next biennium, which maintains the current funding level as well provides for enrollment growth across the state. Additionally, there seems to be an appetite among lawmakers to change the school finance structure to allow for the funding of online learning beyond the current school year, a top priority for Frisco ISD. FISD’s Government Affairs team is tracking all the education-related bills filed so far this session, and you’re invited to follow along.


Students Named to All-State Ensembles

High school students from across the District have been named to one of the Texas All-State Music Ensembles, the highest individual accomplishment a music student can achieve. A total of 55 Frisco ISD students advanced through the highly competitive audition process, which was held virtually this year. Congratulations to all the honored students and their directors.


How Emotional Agility Can Help Us Cope - And Thrive

Frisco ISD parents are invited to join the Guidance and Counseling Department for a virtual session on emotional agility. When we are able to identify and learn from our own thoughts and feelings, we are better able to respond in positive, purposeful ways. That in turn can help to alleviate stress and enhance overall wellness while giving us the confidence to move forward. Join us Wednesday, Feb. 17 to learn how to develop emotional agility and foster these skills in your students.
