The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees held their April meeting on Tuesday. At the meeting, several Redhawks were recognized including those from the Academic Decathlon team and the state championship girls’ basketball team.

The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees held their April meeting on Tuesday where they recognized several Redhawks including those from the Academic Decathlon team and the state championship girls’ basketball team.

“We appreciate any time we get the opportunity to recognize our students and student-athletes in front of our community, parents, the state, and, in this case, the FISD Board of Trustees,” girls’ head coach Ross Reedy said. “Our team’s accomplishments and efforts this year were noteworthy, and we were flattered to have another moment to highlight their journey on the hardwood over the past season.” 

Additionally, a milestone was achieved involving the development and initial implementation of the Teacher Incentive Allotment system. As discussed in the meeting, this system aims to provide teachers with a pathway to higher income while remaining in the classroom. 

Phase one of the program saw 200 teachers meeting eligibility criteria receiving allotments ranging from $2,700 to $14,000 per year for the next five years. The application for Phase two application was recently submitted, expanding the number of eligible courses of the program. 

Trustees also engaged in discussions about required training and ongoing educational obligations, honoring those who fulfilled their board member responsibilities.

Concerns regarding dual credit programs and communication channels were expressed during the public comment session with Collin College Vice President of Dual Credit and District Wide Scheduling Craig Leverette speaking on behalf of Frisco’s dual credit opportunities. 

“I would consider dual credit to be a different version of Advanced Placement,”  Leverette said. “Dual credit allows Frisco ISD students to guarantee entry into a degree plan at their institution of choice.”

A recording of Tuesday’s engagement is available at friscoisd.org
