Plano ISD is committed to excellence, and in the spirit of this commitment, the 2022-2023 school year marks the second year of the Plano ISD Leadership and Ambassador Program.
This leadership program is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of Plano ISD. Ultimately, program graduates will feel empowered and motivated to be active participants in the district’s mission. Participants will be provided with learning opportunities regarding the academic and operational goals of the district in order to gain a greater understanding of internal operations at both district and campus levels. The program culminates in a recognition/graduation event in the spring.
The ultimate goal of the Leadership & Ambassador Program is to create a community of informed leaders. The program will provide participants with learning opportunities to explore the inner-workings of the district and is intended to form a foundation of understanding and involvement in Plano ISD. Program graduates may be called upon to support the district through participation in projects such as strategic planning, redistricting discussions, district and campus improvement teams, focus groups and other planning committees.
