• The CORE Store


    Did we say FREE? Yes. FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE to any Plano ISD teacher, counselor or librarian. If you serve students in Plano ISD, you can shop for free supplies at the Plano ISD Education Foundation's CORE Store. Tell your team. Tell your teacher friends. Spread the word and help students thrive by receiving the (free) supplies your classroom needs to help every student achieve their potential.

    Plano ISD educators can shop once per semester by appointment only. Please bring your Plano ISD badge with you to shop. Contact us with questions at corestore@pisd.edu.

    Thank you for your generosity! Nearly 30 million students are enrolled in the federal government's free and reduced lunch program. In Plano ISD, 38% 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.

    Thank you for helping to provide every student with the supplies they need for a successful academic year!
