FISD Proposes Attendance Boundary Modifications

Frisco ISD has proposed attendance zone boundary changes for the 2022-23 school year that will impact elementary, middle and high school campuses on the west side of the school district. Rezoning is unavoidable as FISD grows and opens new campuses, and for the 2022-23 school year, there are plans to open a new high school and elementary school in the northwest corner of the District. The FISD Board of Trustees will hold a special session on Monday, Oct. 25 to hear citizen input on the attendance zone proposal, and Deputy Superintendent of Business and Operations Dr. Todd Fouche discussed the rezoning process on a recent Frisco ISD Podcast that can be found on Spotify, Apple and Google.


District Adds Second Ethnic Studies Course

Frisco ISD will add a course in Mexican American Studies next school year. The elective course will be open to high school students in grades 10 through 12 with no prerequisites. It will be the second ethnic studies course offered in Frisco ISD. The District launched African American Studies this school year with more than 270 students enrolled across all 11 FISD high schools. Mexican American Studies and African American Studies are the only two ethnic studies courses approved by the State Board of Education and have defined learning standards outlined in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).


Drum Majors Lead Award-Winning Marching Bands

In the month that Frisco ISD band students sometimes refer to as “Bandtober,” the District’s 11 high school marching bands are busy practicing and performing in contests and during football games. Out in front of those bands are the student leaders, the drum majors, directing the award-winning performances. Those 38 drum majors shared what the marching band means to them and how it has enriched their educational experience.


Art and Music Collaboration Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

During Hispanic Heritage Month, students at Vandeventer Middle School were led through a series of lessons molded around Latin culture. The learning culminated with an evening of collaborative music and art performances inspired by the movie “Coco.” The artistic program included a gallery of artwork by students and a performance by Vandeventer orchestra students.
