The Craig Gilbert Scholarship is a very prestigious award given each year to a senior from each of the Senior High Schools in Plano ISD who demonstrates outstanding leadership and good citizenship among his/her peers. The award is named in memory of the late Craig Gilbert, Plano ISD’s first athletic trainer, who devoted his life to the students he served and their well-being. Applications may be downloaded from Naviance or found in the counseling office. Interviews will take place on campus April 26. Please return the completed application to Ms. Powers in the Counseling Office by 4:15 PM, April 15, 2016.


AP Exams - Students who registered to take AP exams must check the huge poster on the cafeteria wall to be sure their AP order has been recorded correctly.

The AP orders are listed by your ID number, not your name.

  • If you ordered AP exams and your ID number is NOT on the AP poster wall in the cafeteria, no AP exam has been ordered for you.
  • Report to the Counseling Center ASAP to check on this important issue. Extra AP exams are not ordered, so if you are not listed, you will not have an exam waiting for you in May.


Art Students Selected for "20 Under Twenty" - We would like to congratulate the following students who were selected for the juried exhibit, 20 under Twenty.

Pratiksha Tonpe

Stephanie Batch

Final Exam Grade Waiver and Final Exam Exemption Guidelines. See below.


2016 Bond Election - On May 7, 2016, Plano ISD voters will decide on a $481 million bond proposal to fund initiatives recommended by the Plano ISD Facilities and Technology Task Force. Appointed in August, 2015 by the Plano ISD Board of Trustees, the task force included citizens, business leaders, teachers, principals and parents. The task force reviewed enrollment trends and projections, established construction and renovation needs, validated costs and sought input from fellow community members. After five months of study, debate and public input, the task force made final recommendations to school trustees which are included in this bond proposal. If approved, the bond initiative will provide funding toward eight major project areas with no increase to the tax rate and will impact all Plano ISD campuses through district-wide security updates, renovations and facility upgrades, as well as technology improvements. Find out more, including specific project allocations, at www.pisd.edu/2016bond. You may send questions to askpisd@pisd.edu.


Parent Survey - During the 2013 Legislative Session, Texas legislators passed House Bill 5 (TEC 39.0545) statute which added a new component to the state accountability system. This statute requires school districts to do a local evaluation that is referred to as the community engagement component. The community engagement requirement is an opportunity for districts to showcase areas of excellence and success as well as recognize areas in need of improvement and set future goals valued in the community. Plano ISD will use criteria written and developed by district committees. With the 2015-16 school year in mind, please take a moment to answer this brief survey regarding parental engagement. This information will be used to complete one section of the Community and Parental Involvement Diagnostic.

The district and campus performance ratings must be reported annually to TEA and made available to the public by August 8 of each year. This information will be shared on the district and campus websites.

Click on the link below to complete the survey. The survey will be open through May 2.
