Frisco ISD Prepares to Open Two New Schools

This school year, the school district will open its 12th high school and 43rd elementary school. Panther Creek High School and Minett Elementary will serve students in northwest Frisco near the new PGA headquarters.

The reason: Enrollment in Frisco ISD schools continues to increase. The District is expected to grow to about 67,500 students by October, a jump of approximately 1,600 students in a year.

The big picture: The new schools will relieve nearby campuses and create additional capacity for Frisco ISD to accommodate even more students moving to our community.

Listen: In the new episode of The Frisco ISD Podcast, we chat with Chief Operations Officer Scott Warstler and school principals Ryan Solano and Kyla Prusak about what it takes to open a new school and build a strong campus community.

Frisco ISD Expands Police Coverage at Elementary Schools

Frisco ISD is partnering with local police departments to increase the number of officers assigned to work at or near the District’s elementary schools.

What’s new: In Frisco, three additional SROs will be hired in the coming school year to focus solely on elementary schools. In McKinney and Plano, more frequent patrols will increase visibility around elementary campuses.

Dig deeper: FISD already has SROs at each middle and high school, with middle school officers also responsible for 2-3 elementary schools. The only exception is in the Town of Little Elm, where the District’s two elementary schools share one SRO. 

The goal: The extra patrols and campus visits are intended to provide an additional layer of safety and security at elementary schools during the school day.

Learn from District Administrators about Standards-Based Practices

This fall, parents are invited to learn the "why” behind evolving District practices related to secondary instruction, assessment and grading.

What’s happening: Middle and high schools are at various stages of implementing standards-based practices with full implementation planned for the 2023-24 school year. Learn more about the approach.

The goal: Students, parents and teachers will have a better idea of where each child stands in their learning and can more precisely respond to needs. Learn more benefits.

Here’s how: FISD parents are invited to participate in a four-session book study.

Why it’s important: Students benefit when parents and teachers are on the same page and work together to support them. Access standards-based practices FAQs.
