  • This summer PISD is partnering with The Plano Mayor's Summer Internship Program & Capital One to pilot the Teacher Externship Program. This program will provide unique professional learning opportunities for PK-12 PISD teachers in collaboration with local partners in business and industry.

    As an Extern, teachers will have access to learning that reaches beyond traditional classroom or workshop settings and engage in experiences that will enrich the classroom-to-career connections they make for our students. Working side-by-side with knowledgeable and skilled industry employees to form a partnership of shared expertise, teacher externs build meaningful community relationships and provide valuable insights for classroom and workplace application.
