Professional Applicants

During the application process, you may be directed to complete the Gallup TeacherInsight™ before your application can be submitted.  With the introduction of the new TeacherInsight™ 2.0, all applicants who have previously taken the TeacherInsight™ will be required to take the new assessment instrument.

  • You will need to reserve at least 45 minutes to take this multiple choice and free response instrument; there are no right or wrong answers.
  • If you have completed the TeacherInsight™ 2.0 for another entity, you will receive instructions directly from Gallup to transfer your TeacherInsight™ assessment.
  • After completing the TeacherInsight™, you will need to revisit the Plano ISD application to complete and submit.

Criminal History Guidelines

Every person who wishes to serve as a District employee, volunteer, camp counselor, private teacher or contractor, or any other person who will have contact with District students shall have a criminal history search performed. More informationPDF file

The 80th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 9 (SB 9), which mandated the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to acquire criminal history through fingerprint submission on: (1) all certified educators who are currently employed, (2) all substitutes and (3) non-certified employees hired after January 1, 2008. This process requires the individual to hold a state-issued driver's license or state-issued ID card.
