************************** ADMINISTRATIVE UPDATES ******************

Campus Security

Random Metal Detector Searches at Secondary Campuses:



The Plano Independent School District (PISD) is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment so that education remains the primary focus for students and staff.


As the district continues to evaluate and enhance school safety features districtwide, the Plano ISD Board of Trustees recently approved policy revisions permitting random, suspicion-less metal detector searches at secondary campuses. Implementation of this policy will begin on secondary campuses soon. The purpose of this policy is to prevent and deter students from bringing weapons to school. School officials are authorized to conduct metal detector screenings of students and searches of their personal effects.


Random metal detector searches may occur at any time and students must comply with instructions and directives from school officials during this process. A student who refuses to comply with the search process will be removed from campus and subject to disciplinary consequences pursuant to the Student Code of Conduct. The district will use both walk-through and hand-held metal detectors (wands).
