In the News: Frisco ISD readying for shift in school attendance zones

December 30, 2020 23:49 PM

Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce weighs in on what opening schools during turbulent times signify in a Community Impact Frisco article titled “Frisco ISD readying for shift in school attendance zones.”

Tony Felker, president of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, said that in this turbulent time, the opening of two more Frisco ISD high schools in the next two years signifies economic growth.

“It’s actually a sign that things are normal again,” Felker said. “Opening a school during this time is a perfect reminder … [that Frisco is] the best city to be doing business in.”

Felker said the school openings demonstrate that the city is staying on track with the identity local leaders have worked to build and maintain: Frisco is a place to live and work, not a “bedroom community.”

“The No. 1 driver for people moving to Frisco and for companies moving here is the quality of life, and in particular, the quality of education that FISD is providing,” Felker said.
