Frenship ISD to Consider Changes for High School Grade Configuration
Frenship ISD will hold two public meetings over the next week to consider changes to the district’s high school grades, 9-12.
The first meeting will be held tomorrow, December 1 at 6pm at the Frenship High School cafeteria. The second, and final, meeting will be Tuesday, December 6 at 6pm at the Terra Vista Middle School cafeteria.
Currently, all of Frenship ISD’s 9-12 grade students are housed at Frenship High School. Frenship High School has a capacity of 2,400 students and the current enrollment is 1,850 students. Based upon enrollment projections with the current number of middle school students in the district, Frenship High School will reach its capacity within the next 5-7 years.
To deal with the potential overcrowding at Frenship High School, the following options will be presented to parents during the two meetings:
- A separate 9th grade campus
- A 9th & 10th grade campus (Frenship HS would presumably house 11th & 12th grades)
- A specialized high school (Technological / Project Based Learning)
- A second high school for FISD
District officials state the four options were developed with input from the members of the district’s high school configuration committee. They visited four school districts in Texas with different high school configurations from what Frenship is currently using.
The committee members documented their findings and will share the information found from these site visits during the two public meetings.
