Frisco ISD Survey Gauges Interest in Online Learning
Frisco ISD parents are invited to complete a survey about their students’ interest in potential future online learning opportunities within the District. FISD is exploring the idea of an online School of Choice should changes be made at the state level during the current legislative session that would allow Frisco ISD to implement this option. The District is considering both full- and part-time online options, and the survey seeks input from parents on their interest level, preferred structure and primary reason for interest in online learning. Should the Legislature implement changes this spring, it’s possible new programming could be introduced as soon as the 2021-22 school year.

Sign Up Now for Free To-Go Meals in the Fourth Nine Weeks
The sign-up form is now available to pick up meals at no cost for the fourth nine weeks of school. Enrolled Frisco ISD students participating in Virtual Academy and non-Frisco ISD children 18 years old and younger are eligible to participate. Because students have the option to switch to on-campus instruction after each grading period, families who have been participating and wish to continue to pick up meals must complete a separate sign-up form for each grading period. Face-to-face students can receive free meals in the cafeteria when they select a complete meal, which includes a fruit or vegetable.

Liberty Girls Basketball Team Finishes as State Runner-Up
The girls basketball team from Liberty High School fell just short of back-to-back state titles as the team made its third straight appearance in the 5A state championship game last week. Liberty, which excelled in close games over the last three seasons, battled back from an early deficit against top-ranked Cedar Park to cut the lead to just one point in the fourth quarter. But Cedar Park, which had blown out all of its previous playoff opponents by at least 21 points, proved too tough to handle. Junior Jazzy Owens-Barnett, who led Liberty with 10 points and six rebounds in the championship game, was named to the 5A All-Tournament team along with senior teammate Maya Jain. Congratulations to the Lady Redhawks on another fantastic season!

Frisco ISD Families Invited to Virtual Workforce Fair
Frisco ISD will host a series of events next week to educate, prepare and connect students with post-secondary career options and pathways. “Society and the needs of the workforce are evolving, and we want to help fill that need by informing our students of a wide variety of post-secondary options,” said Heather Mayfield, Coordinator of Secondary Counseling Services. “All students should have a plan for after high school, whether that means college, two-year certificate programs, the military or work-force training programs that can provide opportunities directly after high school in high-demand careers. We encourage all students to reflect on their goals and to explore multiple post-secondary options for purpose and success.” Middle and high school students and parents are encouraged to participate.
