Foundation Support of Plano ISD Staff
Emergency Assistance for Teachers/Staff in Crisis
Through the Employee Crisis Fund, the Foundation assists teachers and staff who are facing emergency situations and who are unable to meet their immediate financial obligations. Emergency grants are awarded by a volunteer district committee facilitated by the PISD Benefits and Risk Management Department. Confidentiality is maintained for all applicants.
Recruitment, Retention and Recognition of Quality Teachers
The Foundation supports programs that recruit, retain and recognize the very best teachers and partners with Ebby Halliday Realtors to sponsor the annual Plano ISD Recruitment Open House, a comprehensive, spring job fair drawing applicants from across the nation. The Foundation also funds professional development to teachers across the district.
To foster excellence, the Foundation proudly sponsors the annual Teacher of the Year Gala and the Foundation partner Park Place Lexus provides the Plano ISD Teachers of the Year with a Summer in a Lexus package which includes the use of luxury vehicles for the Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year.
