Plano ISD has moved up the dates for parents to change their student’s instructional method for the first nine weeks of the spring semester, according to a district update.

Families have until Nov. 30 to switch from virtual to in-person instruction or vice versa. The original period was scheduled for Nov. 30-Dec. 4. This change allows for more planning time for PISD and its dual-credit partner, Collin College.


Changes may be made through the district’s Parent Portal. Families who do not wish to switch their child’s learning method do not need to make a selection.

The district cautioned that elementary students who switch to a new instructional method will most likely have to change teachers. Secondary students may see a change in teachers and class schedules regardless of whether they switch methods. This is due to a shifting of staff to better align with school needs, according to the district.
