Frisco ISD is accepting applications for its third class of FISD Insight, a community-engagement program that offers participants a behind-the-scenes look at the school district.
FISD Insight first began as a pilot program in spring 2017 with a small group of participants, according to the district.
“FISD Insight is an opportunity for Frisco ISD residents to get a first-hand look at the operations of the school district, beyond what they may read online or see in one of our schools or classrooms,” FISD Director of Community Relations Allison Miller said. “Participants get a true sense of the bigger picture and how decisions are made with student learning and opportunities in mind.”
As part of the program, participants will visit campuses and non-educational facilities, including athletics, maintenance, nutrition and transportation facilities and the administration building.
The program is open to all adults who are either new to the district or lifelong residents, according to a district press release.
Classes begin in January and will be held once a month through May.
Additionally, each participant will be asked to volunteer at a campus for half a school day and attend one school board meeting.
The cost of the program is $15, and applications will be accepted online through Dec. 7.
