Blue Ribbon Schools

Twenty-three Plano ISD schools have captured the National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Award, presented by the United States Department of Education. The award is based upon the following criteria.

  • strong leadership
  • a clear vision and sense of mission that is shared by all connected with the school
  • high quality teaching
  • challenging and up-to-date curriculum, policies and practices that ensure a safe environment conducive to learning
  • a solid commitment to parental involvement
  • evidence that the school helps all students achieve high standards

The national award selection process involves an extensive written nomination, selection by a state blue ribbon committee and qualification for a site visit from a national blue ribbon panel of educators.

The blue ribbon title is presented to elementary and secondary schools across the nation on a rotating, bi-annual basis. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Education's No Child Left Behind website.
