The monthly board meeting is being held Monday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. On the agenda are a resolution on chaplains in school, the 2023-24 improvement plan, and more.

The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees is hosting their monthly meeting Monday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the FISD Administration Building where a variety of topics are scheduled to be discussed. 

Among those is the District Improvement Plan which is an annual plan created for the year’s improvement efforts, and it is up for approval at the September meeting, The changes cover areas of a future-ready focused staff and social/emotional needs.

“This year, in regard to your initiatives that we have, one of those is growing the future ready, readiness on our campus,” principal Stacey Whaling said. “Ms. Evans and Mr. Sabatier, they are two of my future-ready ambassadors, and they’re doing a lot of really cool future-ready work on campus, trying to support teachers in following that mindset and bridge that gap of why are we doing this.”

Also on the agenda is Senate Bill 763 which was passed by the Texas legislature in May. SB 763 allows Texas schools to use safety funds to pay for chaplains to work in mental health roles or to allow volunteer chaplains in these roles. The bill requires each school board to take a vote on whether to adopt a policy authorizing a campus to employ or accept a volunteer chaplain.

The Board of Trustees will vote on whether to pass a resolution stating that FISD does not permit campuses to employ or accept volunteer chaplains to provide support, services, and programs for students.

Among other topics on the agenda is a vote on an updated Memorandum of Understanding agreement with Collin College for Dual Credit classes for juniors and seniors. 

The meeting will also include the public comment section, an opportunity for community members to communicate to the Board. A comprehensive look at the agenda for Monday’s meeting can be found at Friscoisd.org.

Remi Williams, Sports Editor
Remi Williams is a senior and starting her fourth year in Wingspan. At school she is involved in Student Council, on the Girls soccer team, and is Historian for NHS. When she’s not at work she loves hanging out with her friends, working out, and trying new recipes. But she’s usually talking to anyone and everyone or watching Netflix (feel free to send her show recommendations). Her most embarrassing accomplishment is that she has a couple thousand followers on Tik Tok, even though she doesn’t know a single dance. Remi is hoping to pursue a career in marketing at whatever school accepts her in the future. Oh, and she is also probably the funniest person you will ever meet despite what anyone may say.
