• Records Management

    SUMMER HOURS: Monday – Thursday, 7:30 am – 5:00 pm

    The Records Management Department actively supports, promotes, and continues the development of policies and procedures of the records management program for the Plano Independent School District - from the creation of the records to the final disposition of the records - pursuant to the Local Government Records Act of 1989, Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

     Requesting a Transcript or Records

    Access to student records will be granted according to the Federal Educational Rights to Privacy Act (FERPA) and Plano ISD policies FL (Legal) and FL (Local) for student records.

    Once a graduate has turned 18 years of age or is in a post-secondary setting, the parent may not request records of any kind. The Federal Law will allow us to accept a parent's signature in lieu of the student only when that parent brings in the most current 1040 tax form showing that the student is still a dependent for tax purposes.

    • NOTE - Diplomas are considered ceremonial documents, not a district record. The high school transcript, academic achievement record (AAR), is the official record of achievement and graduation.  If you need an actual diploma for framing, you will need to contact the office manager at the senior high school you graduated from, and they will put you in touch with the company that produces the ceremonial certificates and class rings.  (This process can take longer than 4 weeks.)
  • ADULT or PAST Plano ISD Students - or past students in 11th & 12th grade at ANOTHER School District (NOT PISD)

    • Requests can be submitted for transcripts, health records, and proof of enrollment.
    • In accordance with Texas Education Agency guidelines, certified/official transcripts cannot be given to an individual. 
      • Certified/Official transcripts can only be sent directly from Plano ISD to an agency, business, college, or university. 
      • You must provide complete addresses. (This includes the Name of the institution and/or person, Street Address or PO box, City, State, and Zip Code.)
    • Proper identification is required for all requests. 
      • A valid picture ID is required to pick up transcripts or records.  
        • Information on the ID presented at pick-up must match the information submitted on the request form. (If you authorize someone other than yourself to pick up your records, you must provide their complete valid photo ID information on the form when you fill it out.)
    • ACT/SAT scores are not included on the transcript.  You will need to contact College Board or ACT to obtain your scores.
    • If you would like your state test scores (ex: TAAS, TAKS, STAAR), please select "Yes" to the question "Include test scores with transcript?".
    • It may take 5-7 business days to process your request. 
      • Requests are fulfilled in the order that they are received, with no exceptions.
    • When requesting copies from a student's cumulative folder, the district Open Records Fees apply according to Plano ISD policy.  We are not able to process cards; therefore, payment must be by cash or check.

    >>Transcript & Record Request Form - This online form must be completed by the student (unless the student is under 18). It will be submitted electronically to our office - no need to print.

    Tip - If you have requested an emailed transcript and have not received it - check your Spam or Junk folder.
