2015 Annual Report

Dear Plano ISD Community:

Dr. BinggeliI am proud to present to you the district’s 2015 Annual Report, “Make Your Mark,” providing a snapshot of the many ways our 55,000 students and 6,600 employees are making their marks as learners and leaders in the classroom and beyond.

The Plano ISD Board of Trustees has set two major goals for the district: (1) ensure continued improvement in student learning; and (2) ensure efficient use of resources. In these pages, you will see how the district has kept these goals at the forefront of realizing our mission to provide an excellent education for each student.

While remaining good stewards of tax payer dollars, with notably the second lowest tax rate in Collin County, Plano ISD and its leadership team are committed to maintaining exceptional educational programs and experiences for students and educators. This is possible through strong connections with our community in the form of highly engaged parents, dedicated classroom teachers, campus and district leaders and community partners, all of whom believe in our students and our mission.

In my first year as superintendent, I have enthusiastically learned about Plano ISD’s tradition of excellence. I made it my professional mission to visit every classroom in every school, meeting great people who care deeply about the mission of serving children. In my role, I have enjoyed many opportunities to listen, learn and build relationships in our school district and in our community.

As you will find in this report, our students capture more than their fair share of local, state and national honors in academics, arts and athletics. We are inspired by these highly accomplished scholars, artists and athletes, and we are delighted that, through teamwork and partnership, we continue to offer them more choices regarding what and how they learn. It is no wonder that Plano ISD students far exceed state and national averages on college entrance exams and that our district’s graduation rate ranks among the highest in the state.

On behalf of the Plano ISD Board of Trustees, our faculty and students, I thank you for taking time to read this annual report and invite each member of our school community to “make your mark” in the lives of our students as we empower them to adapt to new learning and career opportunities throughout their lives; collaborate with, and contribute to the global community; and to be disciplined and creative in their thinking.
