The Texas Education Agency has released a new set of guidelines that suggests new protocols involving parent and trustee involvement in the evaluation of what books are appropriate for public school libraries.

February was anything but a normal month with Frisco ISD undergoing some unusual circumstances including a severe winter storm. 

The impact of that winter storm is one of the many topics on the agenda for tonight’s school board meeting. 

With the district closing four days due to snow, ice, and one of the coldest three day stretches in state history, FISD officials intend to ask the Texas Education agency for a waiver for these days which would mean students would not have to make up these missed days. 

In addition, with campuses throughout the school district being closed additional days as school were brought back online after the storm, the district is expected to submit another waiver to the TEA, this one asking for full attendance credit and funding since it provided remote asynchronous learning during this time. 

Tonight’s school board meeting begins at 6:30 pm. It can be viewed online here
