Board Approves 2023-24 Attendance Boundary Modifications

Attendance zones are reviewed each fall in Frisco ISD to determine whether modifications are required for the following school year. The Board of Trustees approved attendance zone boundary changes for the 2023-24 school year at the regular November Board meeting. 

Thanks to Board-approved zone adjustments, six campuses will no longer require overflow campuses in the 2023-24 school year. In a district that continues to grow at more than 1,000 students a year, attendance zone adjustments are inevitable to help campuses that have reached capacity and are closed to new students. 

The zone adjustments also make way for the much-anticipated openings of Shana K Wortham Intermediate School and Richard A Wilkinson Middle School in the fall of 2023. Of note, no changes were made to high school zones.

The approved 2023-24 boundary adjustments had several goals:

  • Provide stability in areas experiencing enrollment growth. The District looks at zones that can stay in place for the longest period of time while disrupting as few students as possible when rezoning. 

  • Balance enrollment in existing schools. Some campuses have increasing enrollment, while adjacent schools have declining enrollment. Attendance zone adjustments will distribute District resources in a more balanced and fiscally responsible manner.

  • Effectively utilize available classroom space. FISD strives to provide schools with well-rounded programs and opportunities while maintaining room for growth that avoids leaving schools overcrowded or underutilized for an extended period of time. 

Approved 2023-24 Changes

The 2023-24 updates include changes in the northwest corner of the District where Richard A Wilkinson Middle School will open in the fall of 2023 to 6-8 grade students. In the central part of the District, changes were made to elementary school zones to help balance students and resources. In the east side of the District, changes were made at the elementary and middle school level in preparation for Shana K Wortham Intermediate which will open to 5th and 6th grade students in the area next year.

Northwest FISD

With the opening of Richard A Wilkinson Middle School, some students who live in the current Trent Middle School zone will be rezoned to the new campus. Trent is currently at capacity and all new students who have moved to the zone are currently being enrolled at Griffin Middle School.

Central FISD

Frisco ISD currently has three elementary schools at capacity in central FISD; all new students who move to the Spears, Allen and Riddle attendance zones are currently being enrolled in neighboring schools. To help balance students and resources, changes were made to the following zones: Allen, Bledsoe, Riddle, Shawnee Trail, Smith and Spears. 

The FISD administration proposed, and the Board of Trustees agreed, to provide exceptions to allow some students to stay at their campus for the 2023-24 school year. Exceptions can be found on the FISD Attendance Zone Adjustment webpage.

East FISD

With the opening of Shana K Wortham Intermediate to students in grades 5-6 next year, campuses in the area are adjusting to meet the needs of the growing community. In addition, there is currently one elementary school at capacity on the east side of FISD; all new students who move to the Isbell Elementary attendance zone are currently being enrolled in a neighboring school.

To help balance students and resources, changes have been approved to the Talley, McSpedden, Isbell and Comstock elementary zones, as well as the zones for Vandeventer, Lawler and Scoggins middle schools.

  • Comstock, Elliott and Ogle elementary schools will serve students up through fourth grade.

  • Scoggins will become a campus exclusively open to seventh and eighth grade students. As Scoggins becomes a seventh and eighth grade campus, there is a need to balance enrollment within existing schools to more effectively utilize space.

The FISD administration proposed, and the Board of Trustees agreed, to provide exceptions to allow some students to stay at their campus for the 2023-24 school year. Exceptions can be found on the FISD Attendance Zone Adjustment webpage.
