Plano Family Literacy

The Plano Family Literacy School (PFLS) seeks to create meaningful connections in literacy learning for families with language barriers at home or at school. This allows parents and family members to actively participate in language learning with their children through adult english education and GED preparation, thus empowering our students and their families in the community.

5th Grade Camp

Outdoor School Classes at Collin County Adventure Camp are an extension of school curriculum for all Plano ISD 5th graders. The students participate in 4 outdoor classes while at camp to understand and experience interactive learning in nature. The students have the opportunity to interact with their natural environment and see how they impact it on a daily basis through hands-on activities, demostrations and teamwork exercises.


AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. Spanning from 7th grade to high school graduation, AVID seeks to create a learning environment conducive to college achievement and developing a long-term interest in academic development.

Grants to Educators

The Plano ISD Education Foundation Grants to Educators program is intended to help Plano ISD educators enhance instruction in schools and classrooms across the district. Through yearly grant applications educators are given funding to pursue various projects or provide resources in the classroom in order to create a more fulfilling instructional experience.
