Trustees Hear Overview of Safety and Security Practices

In light of the recent tragedy in Uvalde, Frisco ISD staff shared information this week with the Board of Trustees regarding the District’s current safety and security practices. This included presentations by the District’s directors of security, emergency management and guidance and counseling services. Frisco ISD is constantly evaluating its practices and protocols and exploring opportunities for improvement. Staff will continue to work with partners to implement best practices and consider and adopt new strategies.


Meals No Longer Free for All Students

A USDA waiver that extended free breakfast and lunch to all students expired in Frisco ISD on the last day of the 2021-22 school year. FISD resumed charging for meals based on student eligibility for meal benefits starting with Summer School. In the upcoming school year, lunch will be $2.75 for elementary students and $3.75 for middle and high school students. Breakfast will be $2 for all students. Families who may qualify for free meals due low family income are encouraged to apply after July 1.


Board Workshop Details Proposed 2022-23 Budget

Frisco ISD is prioritizing teacher retention and recruitment in its proposed budget for next school year. Staff believe the 4 percent raise proposed for teachers and other employees on the teacher pay scale is the largest in District history. A 3.25 percent raise is proposed for all other staff. Chief Financial Officer Kimberly Smith told trustees that while some would like to see a larger pay increase, the state funding formula does not account for inflation and rising property values do not mean more money for school district operations.

STAAR Scores Available Later This Month

Results from this spring’s STAAR exams will be accessible to parents starting June 16 for End-of-Course Exams and June 24 for all other subjects. The District continues to receive preliminary results from the state and is in the process of notifying parents of the opportunity for their child to participate in secondary summer tutorials or take an EOC retest. A new state law requires school districts to provide tutoring to any students who did not perform satisfactorily on STAAR. Campus staff will contact parents directly over the next few months if there is a need for their child to receive accelerated instruction over the summer or during the 2022-23 school year.


Architecture Teacher Wins National Award

A teacher at the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center was recently honored for his efforts to connect students with mentors and real-world learning experiences in the architecture, construction and engineering industries. Architecture teacher Clint Floyd received the first-ever Exemplary School Champion Award by ACE National. Floyd and ACE Mentor Program of America have partnered together for several years to provide students with opportunities to benefit from the knowledge and guidance of a professional mentor.
