• Microsoft Teams

    Communication and collaboration just got cooler with MS Teams! Plano ISD faculty and staff now have the ability to use Teams to communicate with each other. Don't worry, we are still using Outlook email. Teams allows you to plan and create with colleagues in a shared workspace in which you can chat and share files. Use it as an instant messaging tool to chat quickly and easily (like texting) from any device. Make the most of its capabilities by installing it on your desktop computer, adding it to your Webdesk, and downloading it to your mobile device. Check out our Tips & Tricks page for more!
