Creating opportunities for student growth and fostering excellence are part of three priorities set by the Frisco ISD board of trustees for the 2024-25 school year.

The three priority statements were approved by the board during a June 10 meeting. District leaders and the board discussed strategic priorities for FISD during a series of workshops.

The details

The board priorities for the 2024-25 school year are:
  • District staff and the community unite to champion Frisco ISD as the premier destination for both students and staff.
  • Frisco ISD promotes a community-wide culture of respect that ensures positive interactions and behaviors within the learning environment.
  • Frisco ISD fosters excellence and student growth through differentiated, relevant learning experiences and varied student opportunities.
The priorities will serve as guiding statements for the district’s improvement plan in the 2024-25 school year, said Kimberly Smith, FISD’s chief finance and strategy officer.

Preliminary discussions of the priorities from the board included wanting an increase in parent involvement; equipping staff to ensure student behavior does not interfere with the learning environment; and creating opportunities for student growth that are curricular and extracurricular.

Diving in deeper

The approved statements are meant to be guides to action and are tied to FISD’s mission and vision, Smith said. They differ from goals that are quantifiable and reasonably attainable.

District officials along with the board will set goals for FISD after trustees approved the priority statements, Smith said.

“Priorities are meant to be aspirational in nature, and are meant to guide our work and say where the board thinks the district needs to invest time, energy and resources over the next year,” she said.
