New Volunteer Management System
Plano ISD is implementing a new volunteer management system for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, all 2019-2020 volunteer records will remain active until August 31, 2020, instead of being deactivated on June 30 per standard practice.
Volunteers will need to reapply in the new system prior to August 31 when their profile will be deactivated in the old system. The new system will be available at www.pisd.edu/volunteer in early August, and any new volunteers wanting to apply will be able to do so at that time. PISD appreciates your patience during this transition as they work to improve your volunteer experience as a valued partner in student success.
Due to a waiver issued from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), all Plano ISD students (whether enrolled in face-to-face instruction or School@Home) will receive free breakfast and lunch meals through December 31, 2020, or while USDA funds last. For meal bundle pickup locations, schedules and menus visit www.pisd.edu/grabandgo. Anyone picking up meals without the student present, must bring appropriate documentation in the form of a school-issued ID, report card, parent portal attendance summary form, or birth certificate.
