Staff Recognized for Their Outstanding Dedication

December Standing Ovation WinnersEach month, Frisco ISD recognizes two employees who exemplify servant leadership and are shining examples of the non-teaching staff. 

The Standing Ovation Award identifies those who serve the mission of knowing every student by name and need while going above and beyond the call of duty.

Standing Ovation Award candidates are nominated by their peers and exhibit a positive attitude while serving as a role model for others. The nominated staff take the initiative and consistently carry out responsibilities beyond their job requirements.
