The Frisco Independent School District has been named one of the 2013 Best Places to Work in North Texas by the Dallas Business Journal.
After an extensive selection process, 58 North Texas companies were selected as part of the annual awards program.
Employees from each company were surveyed by independent research firm Quantum Workplace, with results matched against national standards.
“Frisco ISD employees have the privilege of working to positively influence and impact children’s lives,” said Superintendent Jeremy Lyon. “They partner with parents and the community to ensure we’re always doing what is best for students. Their passion, dedication and commitment to student achievement have made FISD a tremendous place to live, work and grow.”
The District prides itself in smaller schools, which allow for meaningful relationships to form between teachers and students and contribute to a sense of family and teamwork.
“I love working here because of the unlimited amount of support I receive from administrators and colleagues,” said Christina Grider, teacher at Wakeland High School. “No project is ever too much because you know you aren’t in it alone. The teamwork attitude makes for a positive atmosphere.”
Frisco ISD will be featured in a special publication in the September 27 issue of the Dallas Business Journal. Rankings will be announced at an awards ceremony on September 26 at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel.
