10 Minutes Added to School Day


For the 2020-21 school year, Frisco ISD will be adding an additional 10 minutes to each school day, resulting in students being released at 4:25 pm instead of the traditional 4:15 pm timeframe that had been in place for years. In doing so, FISD teachers will now be granted more opportunities for instruction and tutorial times to offer students, options that were not previously available due to the time constraints of the typical school day. 

Additionally, FISD will have a 171-day academic calendar, dismissing students from school just before Memorial Day, May 31, 2021, resulting in an earlier release date than students have seen in past years.
