    Plano ISD welcomed Class 1 of the NEW Plano ISD Leadership and Ambassador Program at their first meeting on September 13. Applications for this elite program were open from April through June 2021, and 26 applicants were accepted into the inaugural class. Class members include community members, Plano ISD parents, alumni, PTA members and members of our business community. 

    The program’s goal is to create a community of informed leaders in the district by providing learning opportunities for deeper understanding. Students are at the heart of Plano ISD's decision making, but Plano ISD is also a business and one of the largest employers in the Dallas area. There is a lot to know about Plano ISD from how the school board works with the leadership team to how the State affects district budgeting, and much more. Class 1 will continue to meet throughout the school year. Read more.
