Administration Offices Move to New Address

The Student Opportunity Center and the Acker/KEYS Special Programs Center need room to expand, so those who were previously housed in the Maple Street Complex and the back portion of Acker have now relocated to a new Administration Building and Board Complex at 5515 Ohio Drive, Frisco, Texas 75035. Some offices previously housed at the Administrative Annex and the Sam Carter Service Center have also been relocated to the new building. All phone numbers and emails have remained the same.

 

The departments that can be found at the new building on Ohio include: Administrative Services; Health Coordinators; Benefits; Student Services; Guidance and Counseling and Fine Arts; Business Office; Purchasing/Procurement; Payroll; Risk Management; Demographics Communications; including the Frisco Education Foundation; Curriculum; Human Resources; Program Assessment and Information Services; Superintendent; Special Education; and the Board Meeting and Training facilities.

 

Technology, Training and the Tax Office are still at 6948 Maple. Construction Services, Custodial, Energy Management, Maintenance, Security, and Textbooks are located at 12025 Rolater.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the new centralized location and of being able to better serve our students, parents and staff in a more efficient manner. We also look forward to having you join us at Board meetings in a facility that can accommodate many more citizens. The addition of this new building will meet the office needs of the school district to build out. We were very fortunate to have been able to take advantage of a lull in construction in FISD and the timing coincided with a down construction market. The district was also able to take advantage of zero interest tax credit bonds that covered the majority of the cost of the building.

Public Hearing on School Attendance Zones Held

The FISD Board of Trustees heard comments from the community concerning upcoming rezoning of attendance boundaries at the December 12 School Board meeting. A final decision is expected to be made at the January 9 board meeting. Information about rezoning may be found online.
