Plano ISD is seeking community input as the district begins mapping its long-range planning goals.

Through a series of brainstorming sessions, the school board and district leaders have identified three key areas for public input.

The areas of discussion include a new Career and Technical Education center, which is covered by the district’s recent bond.

Another key area is classroom technology, which could potentially be funded through recently passed bond propositions.

A third topic is advanced academics, special education and multilingual programs.

Community members may attend any one of a series of three upcoming meetings that are being held throughout the district’s attendance area. Each meeting will follow the same format.

The meetings are scheduled as follows:
  • March 15, 7-8 p.m., McMillen High School, 750 N. Murphy Road, Murphy
  • March 18, 9-10 a.m., Vines High School, 1401 Highedge Drive, Plano
  • March 21, 7-8 p.m., Shepton High School, 5505 Plano Parkway, Plano
Professionals and experts in each of the key areas will also meet to provide input and feedback for the school board, according to district officials.
