Real Estate Agent with Alex Lowery Real Estate

During a recent  Frisco ISD Council of PTAs meeting, Frisco ISD Superintendent, Rick Reedy talked about the rapid growth of Frisco TX and growing  number of student the school district while have to accommodate in the very near future. Reedy stated "FISD elementary schools are built for 700-750 students. When it appears the population will soon reach 850, the district takes action. That usually means either adding a school or redrawing boundaries to move some students to a less populated school."

Reedy mentioned Phillips ES most probably will pull from Boals, Robertson, Purefoy, and Pink.
Proposed zone maps and updates will be placed on the website at www.friscoisd.org  and will be available for review at the campuses

Frisco ISD’s policy of Unity means trying to keep neighborhoods or subdivisions together if possible. FISD prefers not to split a major subdivision down the middle for an elementary school. Children from the subdivisions have been going to school together for a long time and the district tries to keep them together.

In other cases, FISD has not been able to stretch far enough to keep a subdivision together. Grayhawk subdivision, at one time was completely served by Boals Elementary. Enrollment was such that the school couldn’t continue to support the whole community, so FISD opened Robertson Elementary in Little Elm. The northern part of Grayhawk now attends Robertson Elementary.

There is hope if you are zoned out of Boals, but want to remain, but not much. FISD has guidelines on “intra-district transfers” between schools. If the parents want the child to attend a different school, the transfer will usually be granted if the family provides transportation. The number one restriction is that FISD will not transfer a child to a school at greater than 90 percent of capacity.

Sometime in late December, Frisco ISD should announce the rezoning plan and publish it on the district website and in the local newspaper.

Board meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. on the following dates:
November 14
December 12
January 9
