Plano ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian Binggeli seeks advice on an ongoing basis from many school and community groups, including students. The elite team of fourteen high school juniors and seniors who comprise the Superintendent's Student Advisory Committee meet monthly with the superintendent and cabinet members to share issues of importance to students and the school district. The students who serve on the superintendent's committee attend each of the district's three senior high schools and the Academy High School. They are selected by their school principals to serve as student advisors to the superintendent and his leadership team.
