Plano ISD personnel completed a facilities assessment in 2021 that will be used to help determine whether the district calls a bond election later this year.During its Nov. 16 meeting, the PISD board of trustees discussed putting together a task force to evaluate plans for the possible bond.

“We’ll come back at a future meeting and update [the board] on the draft priorities [for the bond],” Superintendent Sara Bonser said. “We look forward to taking some next steps.”

The district’s last bond package was approved by more than 78% of PISD voters in 2016. That package included funds for the construction of the district’s Robbie & Lynore Robinson Fine Arts Center as well as allotments for renovations and upgrades, technology, expansion of classes and program capacity, early childhood education, safety and security, buses and athletics.

“Over the last 20 years, you can see that PISD has a standing history of evaluating facilities and actually spending money,” PISD Chief Financial Officer Johnny Hill said during the board’s Dec. 7 meeting. “We want a very nice environment for our students and staff. Our goal is just to continue that process going forward.”
