INSIDE FRISCO ISD
Frisco ISD Bond Program 2014
On Saturday, May 10, 2014, the citizens of the Frisco Independent School District will be asked to consider a $775 million bond package to provide educational facilities for up to 66,000 students. PASA Demographics currently projects Frisco ISD will reach that enrollment figure in 2020.
The plan was developed by a committee of 27 parents and community members who met for several months to review current FISD facilities and capacities, historical growth and projections, economic indicators and growth plans of the city, along with cost estimates and financial implications. About half of the members had previous bond committee experience.
Ultimately, the group proposed a package that includes new schools, additions and land purchases, instructional and student support needs, and renovations to support facilities. Trustees accepted the proposal at the February 10th regular meeting of the Board and called a bond election for May 10, 2014.
For more information please view the 2014 Frisco ISD Bond Program video which includes commentary by Dr. Lyon.
