Q&A: Steve Noskin seeks re-election to Frisco ISD board of trustees, Place 2

Steve Noskin is seeking to be re-elected to the Place 2 seat on Frisco ISD board of trustees. He is running against Natalie Hebert.

Community Impact Newspaper sent Noskin a set of questions about his candidacy. His answers have been edited for publication style.

This article is part of ongoing May 4 election coverage and does not constitute an endorsement of the candidate.

Why did you decide to run for the Frisco ISD board of trustees?


I am running for re-election for Place 2. As an experienced school board trustee both here and in New York as well as a business owner, I bring a different perspective to the board. I want to continue to be accessible to all stakeholders and enhance our transparency.

What experience do you think prepares you for serving on the board?


I served Frisco ISD for my first term and experienced firsthand my constituency, meeting with many of our stakeholders reaffirmed the needs. I served for six years on the Half Hollow Hills school board, serving as president for two years. I have been a business owner for over 25 years and founded a not-for-profit youth sports league. We have raised over $1 million since 2005.

What would you support out of the state Legislature this session in regards to school finance reform?


In the current House Bill 3, I would support the increased basic allotment per student, additional golden pennies, reduced compression rate and lowered recaptured rate. These items would help our financial position in the district.

How do you think FISD should retain and attract quality teachers?


I have proposed the Three R’s—recruit, retain and reward—to make teaching a lasting profession in FISD. Teachers start out with a competitive salary, but over a 10-year period with inflation, their salary is flat. If we can provide an attractive long-term salary scale, we can lower our turnover, increase our applicant pool and keep great teachers, which benefits our children.

What else do you want voters to know about you?


Over the last three years I have prided myself on being one who can listen, be accessible and follow through. When I was first elected, I put my personal cell number on the FISD website. I believe as a good public servant, you must be available to meet with all groups and stakeholders in the community, and I have demonstrated that I represent all our stakeholders. I am a proven voice you can count on.
