Plano RDSPD Staff News - May 18, 2015
Welcome to the second edition of the Plano_RDSPD Staff Chat.
I hope you have found this another means of communication to keep you updated and informed about all aspects of our program that may affect you. In the near future, Staff Chat will be archived on MyPISD. Please take a few minutes to share feedback with us. We need to know what you need. I have this email set as private. It is a staff only newsletter. Much of the information in your newsletter is also in the parent newsletter.
The Countdown has begun...
While you are away, your team leaders and I will be preparing for the next school year. Look for updates when we come back.
