Plano ISD seeks to create a safe place for students, free from
crime, violence, drugs and abuse. Pursuant to the Texas Education
Code the Plano Independent School District conducts screenings for
any record of criminal history.
The district shall obtain the criminal
history record of prospective volunteers who will be working with
students, including, but not limited to camp counselors, mentors,
tutors, field trip sponsors, overnight trip sponsors, any volunteers
who will have access to student information, and volunteers who
work on a regular basis with students.
All volunteers must reapply after July 1 of each year to be considered for volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers at Dooley Elementary School led campus-wide efforts that resulted in a national "Green Ribbon School" award. Green Ribbon Schools are identified as environmentally-friendly campuses that encourage conservation of natural resources and create green spaces for a healthy, energy-wise environment.
