Plano Isd Spring Break 2023 – The upcoming May 1st is also election day for the Board of Directors of the Plano Independent School District (PISD) (vacancies 1, 2, 3 and 6).
The board has the power to vote on many key decisions. They vote on many decisions that affect the board president and all students and staff in PISD.

Since many of us are parents of current PISD students and future students, we need to be informed about the candidates and the issues they are campaigning for.
Hot topics discussed by parents, PISD and the board during this election cycle include:
The district made every effort to locate and return such students to their classrooms. Funding is based on attendance. Despite students not enrolling, we have contract teachers and must continue to pay salaries.
Disd Student Calendar 2022
We also have teachers who had to be quarantined and used all our staff during this pandemic. Changing costs is not as simple as a light switch in a large “people” organization.
The commissioner has authorized all Texas school districts to be held harmless due to a lack of funding due to declining attendance. Expires December 31, 2020. The Commissioner has the sole authority to make this decision again for a second term, but is delaying that decision pending “legislative leadership.”
Many others, such as PISD and the Chamber of Commerce, have advocated expanding the hold harmless provision so that districts do not have to take drastic measures such as depleting their financial resources, borrowing money for payroll or eliminating (cutting) jobs.

Virtual Schools – We’ve learned a few lessons about the pandemic and know that Plano ISD has smartly pivoted to offer distance education to its students. We have already passed school, but the state does not provide funding for more than 3 courses. We advocate for full funding of students enrolled in virtual courses and expansion of virtual education opportunities so that existing public schools can serve all students and that uniform guidelines apply equally to virtual charter schools and virtual education programs within existing public schools. Additionally, funding based on registration rather than attendance would be appropriate for virtual learning.
I grew up in public schools and am a firm believer in the power of public education. Plano ISD is rated “A” by the Texas Education Agency and many questions have already been answered, but we must continue to improve our curriculum and school programs to help as many students as possible reach their full potential.
I am the father of three wonderful children. My girls, the first graduated from Plano West last year and the second is at Clark High School. My son attends Carlisle Primary School. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and sincerely thank the teachers, staff and Board of Trustees of Plano ISD for providing our community with such a great school!
Billions Paid And Rising: Plano Isd Could Cut Programs Due To Rising State Recapture Bill
I’ve been in journalism for over 25 years and I’ve given one college journalism lecture as a guest on research and fact analysis for newspaper articles, but that doesn’t make me a university professor!
I also gave lectures on some topics while I was a volunteer in the Red Cross and the Red Crescent.
I am the founder of two associations that manage Sunday schools and community cultural and social events. At school, we tried to support children to improve their math skills and learn a new language. Only 63% of Plan students meet or exceed learning standards in mathematics. Why not 80% or 90%? Reading is the same situation, so why aren’t we at 90%?
Parents Ask Plano Isd To Bring Back Plexiglass Dividers, Other Covid 19 Protocols
We had to go to work, but we were in and out of Texas, blessed enough to find a way to get back. We are in Plan from 2009 until March 12.
Public schools must be adequately funded to be effective. My primary goal is to support real action to better reform the district so it can function without adopting a budget deficit.
We must prevent an increase in readmissions in future years because it will seriously harm our district’s operations, reduce funding for school programs, and result in layoffs and overcrowded classrooms.

Since 1993, our school district has had to pay back $1.9 billion from the state of Texas while borrowing money at high interest rates to repair buildings, update technology and buy buses!
From my point of view, the last Bill 3 was the first positive reflection on the argument of our districts, but some school districts were exempted from paying compensation when Plano ISD was still burdened.
Considering the total school population, we must be able to respond and meet the needs of several categories of students. Students from economically disadvantaged families, marginalized students and students who are emotionally and psychologically traumatized by exposure to violence are the most vulnerable and are at greater risk of dropping out of school.
Plano Isd Parents, Community Members Air Concerns About Textbooks They Say Contain Racist Information
This fact alone represents 26% of the total school population. We need to establish new programs or optimize existing programs to deal with this alarming situation.
There are also academic challenges to better prepare our students for college degrees. At the curriculum level, there are several areas of improvement that we need to focus on.
Our teachers and staff must be able to perform their daily tasks in optimal conditions and to provide better financial compensation packages. We have to be very competitive in this area.

In my opinion, this is the main area we need to focus on as parents, but while we put students first, there are clearly other issues that require our commitment and hard work.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at 214 695 2694. If you elect me, you can answer directly and be heard to be your voice on the board.
I want to serve the students and parents of Plano ISD and would like you to vote if possible.
Plano Isd Fine Arts Program Overview
I am the mother of five children aged 14 to 21. I am involved in many levels of education and they are all important. Each class has its own challenges and strengths. I want to be able to present different stages of learning.
All grades are important and parents should have an equal say in decisions for their students. All parents are equal and should have equal opportunities. Example: The choice to choose virtual or face-to-face classes 5 days a week this school year. Grades 9-12
When schools were open, only virtual or in-person classes were allowed two days a week. All other classes could choose 5 days virtually or at school. We need a voice to hear our challenges and hopes. A voice that listens to every student in every class and gives parents a choice.

Our children spend 12 years in school and the PISD statement “Powered by learning” comes to mind. We need to increase access to dual credit classes and vocational classes. These classes offer the opportunity to learn and earn. We must focus on the success of our students.
I believe that parents know what is best for their children. We as parents should see what works and what doesn’t, what are the main problems, and parents have the right to vote in making decisions. Parents’ advice and guidance is very important to the school board. Being a parent of a student who is currently in multiple grades will give you a better understanding of what is happening on a daily basis.
Two high school students in a hybrid model at school two days a week and one high school student in a virtual class. Experience with both models is key to understanding their meaning. I have been involved in Plan’s PTA at various schools over the years. The experience of such parents is invaluable to the school district.

I own my own independent real estate agency. I talk to people who want to move here. I listen to their needs and goals. I facilitate and negotiate results. I have a fiduciary duty to my clients to put their needs before anyone else’s and I will follow the fiduciary care of all PISD students.
I have an MBA in Business Administration and have taken additional education classes. I am currently on PISD’s Careers and Skills Committee. CTE courses provide students with the opportunity to earn vocational certification while still in high school.
It supports students who do not plan to attend college to get an education and realize their potential.
