Congratulations Boys' Golf
UIL 6A STATE CHAMPIONS!
Earlier in the year, Plano ISD established a project team to help operationalize the district's strategic plan goals. Now, with help from students, teachers and parents, we intend to measure our organizational success in ways far more comprehensive than analyzing state test scores.
We are seeking your valuable feedback on some very important issues and ask that you please take a moment to answer the brief survey linked below. The survey will provide us with important insight from the parent perspective and, as such, will be used as we make strategic decisions about everything from program changes to resource deployment. We view our parents' collective responses as critical to our ongoing strategic planning and improvement.
We know that this is a busy time as the end of the school year approaches. The survey will be available for you to take online at your convenience until June 30 at the following link: http://goo.gl/forms/HwrwtM8iJz
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful participation on this important feedback tool. More importantly, thank you for the work you do to help make our schools great places for children to grow and learn.
Dr. Brian T. Binggeli
Superintendent of Schools
Plano ISD has implemented InfoCenter, allowing you to better control how you receive communications from your child’s school and Plano ISD. 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 child’s campus and Plano ISD. 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).
The following link has a step-by-step guide to sign up:

Parents and students,
Important information and resources regarding influenza can be found on the Plano ISD website at: http://www.pisd.edu/parents/health/index.shtml. The district website has been updated to include the Texas Department of State Health Services suggested links and information, as well as basic reminders. Flu season runs thru mid- May.
Drug and Alcohol Prevention Information: "Did You Know"
Did you know approximately 25,00 people overdosed and died from prescription drugs in 2014? You can help keep unused and expired prescriptions from being abused. The DEA holds a drug “take back” day where you simply bring any unused or expired medications to a site and drop it off. It is FREE and it is EASY to do! On April 30, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, you can stop by any collection site nearest you and drop off your medications. There will be sites at PSHS, PESH, PWSH and Clark schools this year. I have included the website if you need a site closer to home.
Please consider cleaning out your medicine cabinets and help us fight the battle of prescription drug abuse. Together, we can make a difference!

Save a Life!
Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed.
"I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go." (Rachel Scott, 17)
Produced by the Theatre Productions students at Plano West Senior High School, “Save a Life” utilizes student performances to deliver a message regarding bullying and suicide prevention. To enhance the impact, the performers included an interactive conclusion to the performance which enabled the audience to participate and established a very personal dimension. This message was delivered to both adult and student audiences.
