Frisco ISD to Eliminate Pay-to-Play Fees for Student Athletes

Frisco, TX (WBAP/KLIF) – Frisco ISD is eliminating its pay-to-play fee for student athletes.

The district began charging $100 for middle schoolers and 200 dollars for high schoolers to take part in athletics in 2017 after local voters rejected a tax increase.

That’s now going away because of the state legislature’s school funding bill, which is expected to provide Frisco around $25 million dollars.

Fees for other extra curricular activities are decided by individual campuses.

They plan to study the effect of the decision, and could add the policy back at the start of the 2020 school year.
