Spring Show Is Here

This Saturday, March 19 is the date for the Plano RDSPD Spring Show. It is always a hit. We hope to see you there. The students have been busy practicing their parts and will be ready to perform for you.


We still need your input.

Thanks to those of you who responded to our parent survey. It is not too late to fill out a survey and send it to your child's deaf education teacher or email it to me. Your responses help us with our Peer Review process. To access the form go to https://sites.google.com/a/pisd.edu/plano-rdspd-parent-page/calendar-of-events/parent-survey. Our Peer Review is in April. The purpose of the Peer Review is to help our program make continued improvements to the services we provide to your child and your family.
