Board set to recognize National Merit Semifinalists and more Monday

The Board of Trustees is holding their monthly meeting Monday at 6:30 p.m. On the agenda, they will recognize National Merit Semifinalists, with 113 in the district and 15 on campus.

It’s a packed agenda for Monday’s Frisco ISD school board meeting at the Frisco ISD administration building Monday at 6:30 p.m.

The board will be recognizing students who were named National Merit Semifinalists. This year, FISD had the highest number in the state, with 113 students accomplishing this honor.

“I am so excited to have my accomplishment recognized,” senior Kirtana Gadde said. “I am also excited to meet up with a bunch of my friends from other schools who also won this award and are going today!”

Additionally, the board will discuss the findings of intruder detection audits and updates on safety and security measures across campus. 

Also on the agenda is discussing the Library Services and Parent Engagement initiatives to engage parents in individualized opportunities to be involved in their child’s reading.

“Starting this school year, Frisco ISD Library Services has worked to increase parent engagement in their students’ reading experience through the implementation of email notifications and, most recently, the prohibited lists resource,” FISD Director of Library and Media Services Amanda Black said. “Specifically, the prohibited list resource is an optional tool that allows parents and guardians to create a list of books they would not like their children to check out. Titles that are prohibited by the guardian will be unavailable for checkout in the campus library for that student.”

Furthermore, the board will act on a resolution proposing a public purpose for using district funds to implement an employee retention incentive in Jan. 2024. The estimated cost is approximately $9,000,000. 

The full agenda is available online, and the meeting will be livestreamed Monday starting at 6:30 p.m.
