COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s official, some students in the Frisco Independent School District now know they will be attending new schools next year.
Monday night, Frisco ISD trustees finalized new attendance boundaries. As it stands, some 53,000 students attend public school in Frisco. Officials said their goal, after redrawing the school attendance zones, is to keep school sizes in check.
Frisco ISD School Board President Anne McCausland said, “Rezoning is not an easy process, but it is one that we take seriously and one that we are annually involved in due to continued rapid growth and the need to build schools to meet the needs of that growth.”
The district did make a few changes to the original proposals. Click here to see the finalized boundaries.
“We believe the final zones approved by the Board demonstrate that we listen and that we do our best to address parent questions and concerns,” said McCausland.
There have been 60 new schools built in the Frisco ISD in the last 20 years, but more than 3,000 new students enroll in the district every year.
In May 2014, Frisco ISD voters approved a $775 million bond referendum that assigned a portion of the funds to build 14 new schools, including eight elementary schools, three middle schools and three high schools. The bond also covered the cost for school additions, renovations and land purchases.
