PCIS Application Information

The application window for the Prosper Career Independent Study (PCIS program) is now open.


PCIS is a unique experiential learning experience designed for Prosper ISD juniors and seniors. Students begin by focusing their study on a career topic of their choosing and conducting interviews with professionals in their chosen field. Students will then carefully select a mentor to work with for the remainder of the year. The mentors will help students understand and navigate both the study and the soft skills specific to the respective career field. Course expectations include the development of an extensive research portfolio, written assessments of interviews and/or observations of professionals who work in that career field, and participation in the end of the year showcase at which students share their work and reflect on the learning.


While the PCIS program is not limited to Gifted and Talented Students, many of our Gifted and Talented Alumni found it to be a challenging and rewarding experience that led to lifelong connections in the professional world.


If you would like more information about the program, please view the PCIS website or, contact your campus PCIS teacher (Ms. Coshari Chacchia - Rock Hill High School and Ms. Tiffany Ballard - Prosper High School).


The application for the PCIS program can be found here. The deadline for all applications is Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 11:59 PM.

Hope Squad/Be Kind Shirts for Sale

Our Hope Squads will sell "Be Kind" yellow T-Shirts as a symbol to simply be kind to one another, which is why you often see "yellow" shirts scattered throughout our district on Wednesdays each week. This stems from supporting our cause of suicide awareness and prevention.


To purchase a shirt, log in to My School Bucks, Go To School Store, Look for Hope Squad T-shirt, Select T-Shirt option (See options below) Student Name. Homeroom = 1st Period Classroom


Orders will be placed at the end of each month with delivery to campuses the following month. 1st Period teachers will hand them to students when they arrive.


PISD will continue to light up the new Children's Health Stadium every Wednesday evening as a simple reminder for our community to show kindness and compassion to one another. If you find yourself driving around Prosper on Wednesday evenings, drive by the stadium to enjoy PISD's symbol for kindness.

Submit anonymous tip to Prosper ISD


Tip411 is a new tool to enhance student safety. It is an internet-based communication system that gives students or any concerned citizen a means to quickly and anonymously report threats, potential self-harm, concerns, suspicious or criminal behavior at school or beyond school hours regarding PISD schools, students and/or staff.


When you submit a tip, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service acting as a privacy buffer between you and the Prosper ISD Police Department to preserve your identity and contact information. If you have a tip for the Prosper ISD Police Department please use any of the options on this page to provide important information on crimes or criminals that will help us to keep Prosper ISD safe for everyone.


Tip submissions may not be received until the following day. In case of emergency dial 911.

After Hours Reporting for Potential Threat to Self


What happens if a staff member or student learns that a student might be suicidal after school hours, on the weekend, or during a holiday?

If immediate help is needed, call 911.


Students should make a report to tip411. After the report has been made, they should follow up with the Hope Squad Advisor (if the student is in Hope Squad).


Staff should also make a report to tip411. Once a report has been made, staff should notify the campus principal letting them know that a report has been made.


Option 1

Download the Prosper ISD App. Click on Tip411. Enter tip. You will receive a message back through the app once the message is received.
