    All junior students should plan on arriving at Plano West by 8:45 a.m. so they can have time to locate their testing rooms and start testing promptly at 9 a.m.  They should plan on bringing No. 2 pencils, a calculator, and an ID badge to their testing room. 

    Testing room assignments will be located in the A-building foyer.

    Senior students will have a delayed start bell schedule on March 22.  (see schedule below).  Seniors may arrive for lunch at 11:09 a.m.,  *or they may wait to arrive until their first class period. 

    Please note that periods 0/7 are the first periods after lunch.  There will be no alternate bus transportation; therefore, senior students who arrive at 9 a.m. will be assigned to a study hall room until lunch.  If one or more of their teachers is assisting with the SAT administration (from 11:39-2:15), they should plan on checking in to their relocation room.  Class relocation assignments will be posted in the A-building foyer, as well as the upper and lower A-building hallways.

District Announcements

  • Plano ISD Weather Closure Extended to Include Friday, February 3

    Due to hazardous travel conditions that will continue through Friday morning’s commute, and keeping the safety of our students and staff a priority, all Plano ISD schools and facilities will remain closed through Friday, February 3.

    Although weather conditions improved somewhat today, the continued precipitation and tonight’s expected freezing temperatures remain a safety concern for many of our less traveled roads and bridges, student drivers and students who walk to school.

    The forecasted below freezing temperatures overnight and continued precipitation also pose a significant safety concern for icy district parking lots and sidewalks for the morning commute. The weather is expected to improve by midday tomorrow, but not in a time frame that would allow a safe commute to school.

    The improved weather conditions over the weekend will allow Plano ISD to resume our normal schedule for schools and offices on Monday, February 6. 

    We appreciate your patience and cooperation throughout this challenging week.

    Please continue to monitor the school district communications channels for any updates or new information regarding the weather and school operations via

  • Community Input Meetings

    The Plano ISD Board of Trustees and District Leadership have recently begun a Strategic Roadmapping process to provide a long-range plan for the district.  After an initial brainstorming/curation process, we have identified several areas for community input. Trustees and district leaders will host a series of sessions for the community to gather feedback on the topics related to the Strategic Roadmap for the district’s future planning.  

    Community members are invited to attend and participate in activities designed to receive input and gather interests on the following topics:

    • Career and Technical Education (CTE), particularly related to plans for the new CTE Center as part of the recent Bond
    • Academics including advanced academics, special education and multilingual programming
    • Instructional technology, particularly related to classroom technology to be potentially funded by the recently passed bond propositions

    In addition to the community meetings, work groups of professionals/experts in each of these areas will meet to provide input and feedback to the Board of Trustees. Community input will inform these work groups, district leaders and the Board of Trustees as they define a map for the future in creating the next strategic plan.   

    The forums will be held on the following dates in various locations across the district. The same activity will be conducted at each session. The community is invited to please attend and provide input to this important planning process. Select the date and time most convenient for you. 

    • Saturday, February 4:  9:00-10:00 a.m. at Jasper High School
    • Monday, February 6: 7:00-8:00 p.m. at Williams High School
    • Monday, February 13: 7:00-8:00 p.m. at Clark High School
