    Plano ISD Board Approves Long Range Facility Plan

    On Monday, June 10, the Plano ISD Board of Trustees approved recommendations presented by the Long Range Facility Planning Advisory Committee. The approved recommendations include the closure of Davis and Forman Elementary Schools and Armstrong and Carpenter Middle Schools. Boundary changes associated with the closures were also approved.

    As outlined in the plan, these changes will take effect for the 2025-2026 school year. With the goal of improving learning outcomes for students, several critical factors were considered, including aging facilities, declining enrollment and the need for better utilization of resources and facilities. 

    Related Student Transfer Information

    Changes to attendance boundaries will not be in effect until the 2025-2026 school year, but the district recognizes that some families may wish to make a change for the 2024-2025 school year. To assist families, there is a window of opportunity open now until 11:59 PM on June 18, 2024 to submit a transfer application for 2024-2025. Students who are impacted by closure or boundary change will receive priority consideration during this window. To submit a transfer application, please visit www.pisd.edu/pisdtransfer. Detailed instructions and additional information about the transfer process are available on this webpage.
