2016 Strategic Plan

In 2016, Frenship ISD initiated a strategic planning process where community members, parents, students, and staff worked together to set goals for Frenship's future. That plan outlined strategic measurables on how the district would serve it's students and Frenship families over the next five years. Those goals can be seen below.

In the fall of 2021, Frenship ISD will once again start a new strategic planning process to map out the district's objectives, assess goals, our beliefs, and to determine how to best serve our Frenship families.
