• Help all students be prepared when the 2020-2021 school year begins.

    Each year the Plano ISD Education Foundation partners with businesses and individuals to secure school supplies to help out our families in need.

    School has started remotely and we still have needs! 

    Supplies are distributed in several ways: 

    • The CORE Store - An inititiative of the Plano ISD Education Foundation, allows educators from across the district to shop for free for the items they need to support their student's in learning. 
      • 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.
    • Back to School Fair - Over three days during the summer, Plano ISD hosted community fairs so that families could access services and resources to get them off to a strong start for the school year.
      • The Plano ISD Education Foundation provided 1,400+ stuffed backpacks with supplies and resources for families. 
    • As Requested - From time-to-time, teachers and campus adminsitrators will reach out with specific school supplies need to support a certain student or program.
