                      CORE Store                      


Notice: Due to overwhelming positive reception in the community, CORE Store shopping hours are currently by invite only through invitations sent out to each school's respective administrators. Once all PISD schools have had an opportunity to shop with us, we will be opening regular hours to all teachers across the district. Thank you for your patience!

        On September 7th, 2016, the PISD Education Foundation celebrated the long awaited opening of the CORE Store to serve educators throughout the community by providing school supplies and classroom materials free of cost for use in classrooms across Plano. “It is so exciting to see this store become a reality,” said Jean Callison, committee chair for the CORE Store initiative. “This store will help teachers fill in the gaps where their students’ families cannot afford. It is another way as a community that we can support our teachers and students.”



             The store’s vision and mission are to help students succeed by equipping teachers with donated classroom resources, providing an opportunity for every Plano ISD student to have the supplies required for success in school. Centrally located on 15th Street in Plano in space donated by Medical Center of Plano and supported by donations from the community, the CORE Store allows teachers to shop for additional school supplies for their students at no cost to them. Across the district 16,164 students (about 30%) qualify for free or reduced cost meals, with some campuses reaching as high as 90%. For these campuses, school supplies and classroom materials represent a day-to-day struggle for many students and teachers who may not always be able to afford what they need.


         “Clearly there is need, and thanks to our generous donors and volunteers, there is a safety net for students and their teachers,” Said Education Foundation Executive Director, Kristin Alexander. “Our teachers can now access supplies for their classrooms and their students throughout the school year without cost,” said Plano ISD Board President Missy Bender. “We are grateful for the continued support that our community provides to meet the needs of our teachers and students, giving each child the opportunity to maximize his or her personal potential.”
