Report: Number of students leaving Plano ISD outpaces newcomers for 5th consecutive year


More Plano ISD students left the district than enrolled for the fifth year in a row.

An estimated 5,321 new students enrolled in PISD this year while 5,795 students left—a difference of 474 students. Those numbers exclude students enrolling in prekindergarten and kindergarten as well as those who graduated out of PISD, according to Templeton Demographics, the demographic consultant who provided the report at the PISD board of trustees’ Feb. 19 work session.

This year’s enrollment figures mark the largest difference between the number of newly enrolled students and the number of students who left the district in the past five years.
