Frisco ISD expanding for growing enrollment

Posted: Updated:
FRISCO, Texas -

The fast-growing Frisco school district will have to turn some children away from their neighborhood schools.

In 15 years, the district has grown from seven schools to 56 and more are planned. Four elementary schools are filled to capacity and not accepting new students.

"If a family moves in tomorrow at one of these four schools they will not be able to enroll that student at that school. They will have to go to another school in close proximity, which is a good thing in our case that our schools are built so close to one another," said Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Lyon.

The district will have 45,000 students when classes begin Monday.

In the next two years it will build two high schools, a middle school and at least four more elementary schools.
