Special and Gifted Education

What is SAGE?

SAGE stands for “Special and Gifted Education,” but our scope is to benefit all families associated with Frisco ISD. We endeavor to promote a close alliance between parents and educators of diverse learners in hopes of benefitting ALL children. SAGE is a committee of the Frisco ISD Council of PTA’s.

2018-2019 SAGE News: Become a Best Buddy

In order for your child to become a member of Best Buddies, they must fill out a Membership Application through the online system at www.bestbuddiesonline.org. Click “Membership Application” at the top of this page and fill out the information. If your child participated in the chapter last year, they can renew their application by selecting “Returning Member” and entering their username and password. If you have any questions about the Best Buddies chapter, please contact Jonea Hawkins (hawkinsjo@friscoisd.org) , Keri Stark (starkk@friscoisd.org) , or Lynzi Fish (fishly@friscoisd.org).
