2020-2021 PISD 

Check out the Plano PISD website for information about planning for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year on August 12.  Guidance from the State of Texas and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is pivotal in that planning. Planning for the 2020-21 school year was discussed at the Plano ISD Board of Trustees meeting on June 23, 2020.

2020-2021 VOLUNTEERS

 

Plano ISD is excited to announce the implementation of a new volunteer management system for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, all 2019-2020 volunteer records will remain active until August 31, 2020, instead of being deactivated on June 30, per standard practice. 

Volunteers will need to reapply in the new system prior to August 31 when their profile will be deactivated in the old system. The new system will be available for use in early August, and can be accessed at www.pisd.edu/volunteer. New volunteers wanting to apply will be able to do so at that time as well.

For technical assistance with your current volunteer account, including your username and/or password, please contact the Plano ISD Help Desk at helpdesk@pisd.edu or (469) 752-8767. 

Thank you for your patience as we transition to a new volunteer management system in order to improve the experience for our volunteers who are valued partners in the success of our students. We greatly appreciate your willingness to invest your time and efforts into supporting Plano ISD students, families and staff. If you have any questions, please contact askPISD@pisd.edu.

 


 

 We see you. We hear you. We value you. We will stand with you. We will take steps forward.

PTAs are intended to be a place of welcome. We value our differences as we work to realize our mission to ensure all kids reach their full potential. Plano ISD Council of PTAs continues to strive toward intentional inclusion because racism, discrimination, and exclusion have no place in our schools or our community at large.

Today, we see the need for Plano ISD Council of PTAs to support our students and families who are dealing with a degree of hate that many of us in PTA leadership have never experienced. We will walk hand-in-hand with our community to work together to establish ways for Plano ISD Council of PTAs to be the REAL thing - building and strengthening relationships between all of our community; educating us all on the issues that present themselves to minorities; advocating for those who feel unseen and unheard; legislating for change; and using the power of our voice at the polls.

Fear of not being able to reach your full potential because of the color of your skin is not acceptable.

"This year, Texas PTA surpassed 520,000 members. With this size comes diversity as big and beautiful as our state itself. From the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast, we are people of many colors and languages. Our differences are celebrated and together we make up a strong, thriving association. But we are not impenetrable to heartache."
