Plano ISD has extended its partnership with TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy, ensuring the continuation of a program that allows students interested in cosmetology to get a jumpstart on their education.

The overview

The PISD board of trustees approved a continuation of the partnership between the district and hairdressing academy through the 2035-36 school year during its May 7 meeting.

The partnership launched last January, allowing incoming 11th graders selected by lottery to enroll in the program that provides 1,000 hours of cosmetology instruction. Successfully completing the two-year program allows students to take the state cosmetology licensing exam as a graduation senior.

Classes are held at the PISD TONI&GUY Academy facility housed at Academy High School, 1701 Alma Drive, Plano.
