At the polls, Plano ISD voters overwhelmingly support the school district in passing multi-million dollar facility and technology bond packages. These initiatives, recommended by staff / citizen bond committees, ensure that Plano schools are renovated on a 20-year schedule to bring older facilities up to date and so that new schools are constructed to accommodate growth in student enrollment.
