For the third straight year in a row, the Frisco ISD Board of Trustees has lowered the district tax. This rate is the lowest Frisco ISD has seen in more than 20 years.

Frisco ISD’s monthly board meeting will be Monday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Frisco ISD Administration Board Room.

At this school board meeting, the Frisco Education Foundation will present their check on behalf of Grants for Great Ideas

To date, the foundation will have given over $900,000 in grants to Frisco ISD educators.

In addition, the board will act on a proposal to designate funds from the 2014 and 2018 bond towards projects such as the $4 million, 25 year refresh of Anderson Elementary School

Furthermore, Frisco will be recognized by the College Board as one of 250 school districts with placement on the 10th annual AP District Honor Roll. Last year, Frisco administered over 16,000 AP exams with over 75% earning a 3 or higher.

Finally, Frisco will partner with Children’s with their telehealth pilot. Seven Frisco schools will pilot the video technology and allow school nurses to connect with Children’s Health

This communication will allow for students to be diagnosed and have prescriptions sent to local pharmacy without having to leave campus.
