• The CORE Store

CORE Store Shopping Appointment Sign Up

  • Launched in 2016, the CORE Store has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in supplies and classroom materials to teachers throughout Plano ISD. The CORE Store allows teachers to shop for additional school supplies for their students at no cost. Across the district, one out of every three students is classified as economically disadvantaged, with some campuses having as many as 90% of their students. For some classrooms, school supplies and classroom materials represent a day-to-day struggle for many students and teachers.

    The CORE Store's mission is to help students succeed by equipping teachers with donated classroom resources, providing an opportunity for every Plano ISD student to have the supplies required to be successful in the classroom. 

     Help us continue to meet the need for school supplies in our classroom by contributing online to the Plano ISD Education Foundation or by mailing gift cards that can be used to purchase supplies to the Plano ISD Education Foundation at 2700 W. 15th Street, Plano, TX 75075. We appreciate your support during this time.

  • School Supply Donations Needed

    Nearly 30 million students are enrolled in the federal government's free and reduced lunch program. In Plano ISD, 36% of our students are economically disadvantaged. For these students, school supplies are a luxury. Many arrive at school without a single pencil or notebook, unable to participate in day-to-day lessons and activities.

    Please help us provide every student with the supplies they need for a successful academic year!
