Athletic turfing at Frisco, Independence and Reedy high schools

Parking expansions at nine high school campuses
All high school campuses except Frisco High School are undergoing parking expansions. By the first day of school, expansions all schools except Liberty and Memorial high schools will be complete. These expansions will allow for marching band practice as well.
Rogers Elementary renovations
