School Board Calls May 7 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.

School begins at 7:45. If a student arrives after the front doors have been closed, they will be tardy and need to check in with the office. Tardy students should be brought in by a parent.

STILL NEEDED! The nurse is in need of pants of all sizes, especially for boys

If you have pants your child has outgrown, we would appreciate having them! Please put them in a bag and send with your child or drop it off in the front office. Thank you for helping us!
