No doubt this year has been challenging for the Plano ISD. In-person learning has dropped a little as Plano goes into its third nine weeks according to a Community Impact article published on December 11th. In it they say:
“Plano ISD will see a slight district-wide decrease in students opting for face-to-face instruction at the start of the spring semester, according to data released Dec. 11. Results from the most recent parent decisions show a slight drop to about 53% of students in the face-to-face environment once classes resume after the holidays. Families were given the option to change their learning method in November. About 47% of students were signed up for in-person learning at the beginning of the year. For the second nine weeks, that percentage increased to 55%, according to district data.”
Apart from that, the Plano ISD has finally approved the final calendar for the 2021-2022 school year according to another Community Impact article published on December 8th. In it they say:
“Plano ISD‘s 2021-22 school year will see classes begin on a Wednesday for both the first and second semesters next year. The Plano ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the new calendar during its Dec. 8 meeting, though trustee Jeri Chambers was absent from the meeting. The new calendar will include 84 instructional days during the first semester and 91 during the second. School starts Aug. 11, 2021, and wraps up on Friday, May 27, 2022.”
The Plano ISD has remained on top of things this year all things considered, and has even given students the power to choose how they would like to learn during this pandemic.
