The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted in favor of adopting a new calendar for the 2020-2021 school year that will increase each school day by 10 minutes in order to end the year on May 21.

Many parents in the community were divided on the change but Redhawk sophomore Saujash Barman does not see the new calendar as a big deal.

“I actually think that this is a good idea because adding 10 minutes to the school day is not really going to make a difference, but getting out three days earlier is going to be much more fun,” Barman said. “I feel like that’s something people can look forward to.”

The approved schedule will also align spring break with Collin College to accommodate students with dual credit courses.

The school board also honored six Redhawks who earned perfect scores on their ACT or SATs: Kapil Rampalli, Tom Punnen, Kunal Dhawan, Zachary Suzuki, Jonathan Peng, and Keshav Narasimhan.
