Frisco ISD will begin the process of creating a rezoning plan for the 2021-22 school year at its next board of trustees meeting.

Todd Fouche, FISD deputy superintendent for business and operations, updated the board on the timeline for rezoning planning at an Oct. 13 meeting.


Changed attendance zones will accommodate for the fall 2021 opening of Emerson High School on the east side of the district in McKinney as well as for some elementary schools currently overflowing to an existing school of capacity, Fouche said at the meeting.

The board will get a first look at zones at the Nov. 9 board meeting, he said. Citizen feedback to the board will open the week of Nov. 30. The board will vote on zones Dec. 14.

"It's a little bit of an adjusted timeline because we wanted to see enrollment numbers for a few extra weeks," Fouche said.
