Video and Website Inform Voters about $481,000,000 Facilities & Technology Bond Proposal to be on May 7 Election Ballot

On May 7, Collin County voters residing within the Plano ISD attendance zone will be asked to consider a single proposition to provide $481 million toward eight major project areas with no increase to the tax rate. If approved, all Plano ISD campuses will be impacted by district-wide security updates, renovations and facility upgrades, as well as technology improvements. The bond initiatives were recommended by the Plano ISD Facilities and Technology Task Force appointed by the school board. Comprised of citizens, business leaders, teachers and parents, the task force reviewed enrollment trends and projections, established construction and renovation needs and validated costs before making recommendations to the board. Watch our new bond overview video video icon, and find resources such as projected allocations and an FAQ on our website. read
