Frankford Volunteers

All schools within PISD are using the Raptor sign-in system to ensure student safety. This system enables schools to run a check on all visitors through a national database. Upon your first visit to Frankford—any person who wishes to enter the building, other than to the school office, must have a driver’s license or state-issued photo ID and will be scanned using the Raptor system regardless of your application status.

This would also include anyone who has a current approved volunteer application on-file with the school and district. For those who still need to apply to become approved volunteers, please use this link www.pisd.edu/volunteer and mark "Frankford" as your campus of choice.

For official PISD guidelines, please visit: http://www.pisd.edu/about.us/safety/index.shtml

Many Thanks,

Plano ISD Infocenter

Plano ISD has implemented InfoCenter, allowing you to better control how you receive communications from your school or district. The following is a guide to help you get started.

What is InfoCenter?: InfoCenter provides access to all the messages and information sent by your organization. Accessible from any internet-enabled device, InfoCenter visually displays and organizes alerts, notifications, and attachments for easy review and reference. InfoCenter also allows you to customize how you receive communications from PISD (campus and district).

How do I sign up for InfoCenter?: Signing up for InfoCenter is easy. Using the email address that you have on file for your district (emergency card), follow these three steps:

1. Download the InfoCenter by SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Market. You can also access the InfoCenter web portal at https://infocenter.schoolmessenger.com/

2. Click the “New User” button, enter your email address, and create a password. An email will be sent to that address with a secure token. Note: If you receive an “already claimed by another user account” error message that means you’ve already created a SchoolMessenger account via another SchoolMessenger product, such as Contact Manager. Simply follow the “Return to login” link and login. Use the “Forgot your password” link if needed.

3. After authenticating via the token sent to your email, return to InfoCenter and sign in using your email and password.

What’s in InfoCenter?:Once you’ve created your account, the records associated with your email address will be linked automatically. You can then:

  • View the records associated with your account.
  • Review the last 30 days worth of messages for all your associated records.
  • View your contact information, and configure how you’d like to receive notifications.

Important Things to Know:

  • Regardless of how you choose to receive notifications, all messages associated with your records will be retained in the InfoCenter inbox for 30 days.
  • You can opt into receiving Device Notifications (Push) under Notification Preferences. When choosing to receive Device Notifications, a badge or alert will appear when you receive new communications from Plano ISD.

Our provider, SchoolMessenger, makes the security and privacy of your data a top priority. As one of over 100 approved signatories to Student Privacy Pledge, you can feel ensured that your student’s information is safe and will never be sold, rented or shared.
