FISD introduces new attendance zones


Frisco ISD

New attendance zones have been drawn and proposed ahead of the opening of Emerson High school. These new zones would affect current Liberty zones.

Construction on Emerson High School, located just a few miles from Liberty, is moving along with the new high school scheduled to open in August of next year. 

With its proximity to Liberty, that means Frisco ISD is having to adjust attendance zones for some of its high schools near Emerson. 

Growth projections for Liberty without a change in attendance zones would have the school at more than 2,200 students next year, nearly 2,400 students in 2022, and more than 2,500 students in 2023.

However, the draft attendance zones released last night would have all Frisco ISD students in the 9th and 10th grade next year, that live east of Custer road, attending Emerson High School. 

That move would keep Liberty’s projected attendance for the next three years between 2,000 and 2,100 students.

Monday’s presentation of the draft attendance zones for next year was the first step in the rezoning process.

There will be an opportunity for public comment on the process at a special board meeting on Dec. 1, with the board of trustees hoping to make a final decision at their regular meeting on Dec. 14.
