News from Frisco ISD
DISTRICT HIGHLIGHT FRISCO ISD For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Texas Education Agency released its accountability ratings for Texas school districts and campuses Aug. 15. Texas schools are rated on a A-F scale. This year, schools that received a rating below a C were considered “not rated,” in alignment with Senate Bill 1365, which was passed in 2021. Districts and campuses with scores of 90-100 received an A, followed by 80-89 for a B and 70-79 for a C. Unrated schools scored below a 70. Frisco ISD is the largest school district in North Texas to receive an A rating, and all campuses received either an A or B as their overall rating, according to a district news release. “While we are proud of all that our students and teachers have accomplished, it’s impossible to summarize their success in a letter grade,” Superintendent Mike Waldrip said in a statement.
