The long-range planning committee will review and evaluate facilities planning for Frisco ISD.

Frisco ISD’s long-range planning committee will meet for the first time Wednesday and will serve as an advisory group to the FISD board of trustees and district administration.

The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the administration training rooms in the FISD administration building, 5515 Ohio Drive, Frisco.

The purpose of the committee is to learn about issues facing FISD and to present possible solutions to the board and administration. Last year, the committee focused primarily on the budget, and the focus this year will be on facilities planning.
