Information about Separating
- If you have a child/children enrolled in Plano ISD's Employee Child Care Center, a written withdrawal notice must be submitted at least 30 days in advance to the Child Care Coordinator prior to the withdrawal date. Failure to inform the Employee Child Care Center may result in continued payroll deductions.
- Upon their effective date of separation, a separated employee will no longer have access to district network resources (including district drives and Google Drive). Because Google Drive documents owned by the separating employee will disappear after 90 days, users need to make preparations to either download and re-upload, or to transfer ownership of their files; refer to Instructions for transferring your files. For assistance regarding district drive and/or Google Drive accesses, contact Instructional Technology.
- Plano ISD does not return previously submitted, original transcripts, as they are part of your employee personnel file and kept for retention.
- Employee Service Center – after your effective date of separation, you may view your personal information, employment records and payroll information, including paychecks and W-2s, in the Employee Service Center. Simply register for an account by: clicking the “Register” link after "Need an Account?” and complete the required fields. If you encounter any technical issues, contact the Help Desk with questions at (469) 752-8767.
