Frisco ISD Forms Facilities & Programs Evaluation Committee

Jun 06, 2018

A committee of Frisco ISD community members, parents, students and staff will meet over the next few months to envision the future of the school district.

The Facilities & Programs Evaluation Committee will serve in an advisory capacity to the FISD School Board and administration regarding the long-term facilities and program needs of the District.

The group will examine student enrollment projections, school building capacities and facility and maintenance needs. In addition, they will learn about the District’s goals and objectives regarding academics, security, technology, athletics, transportation and more.

The committee is an extension of FISD’s efforts to engage the community in District planning and decision-making over the last two school years.

Last fall, a separate advisory committee recommended FISD continue its current model for high schools. Each high school in the District serves approximately 2,100 students in grades 9-12.

Maintaining that configuration means FISD will need another two high schools to accommodate the projected number of high school students in the District in the next five years.

Funds are available through the 2014 bond program to build one high school (HS #11) and two elementary schools (ES #43 and #44). In addition to another high school (HS #12), current enrollment projections also show FISD will need a middle school (MS #18) and another elementary (ES #45) by 2023. Learn more about the status of the 2014 bond program.

The Facilities & Programs Evaluation Committee will assess and prioritize District needs and develop recommendations to present to the School Board in August.
