Plano ISD Considers Closure of Four Schools Due to Declining Enrollment

Plano ISD is evaluating the potential closure of four schools in response to a significant drop in student enrollment.

Plano Independent School District (ISD) is currently evaluating the potential closure of four schools due to a significant decline in student enrollment. The district, which has been a cornerstone of the Plano community, is facing the challenging task of reallocating resources and making difficult decisions to adapt to changing demographics.

The proposed closures are a response to a trend that has been observed over several years. Decreasing birth rates, shifting population patterns, and other demographic factors have contributed to the reduced student numbers. The district is now engaging with the community to discuss the possible closures and gather feedback from parents, students, and staff.

Community meetings are being organized to ensure that all voices are heard and that the impact on students is minimized. The district is also exploring options to repurpose the affected school buildings for other educational or community uses.

Superintendent Sara Bonser emphasized the importance of making informed decisions that will benefit the district in the long term. “We are committed to providing high-quality education and must make strategic choices to ensure we can continue to serve our students effectively,” Bonser stated.

The decision on the closures is expected to be made later this year after thorough consideration and community input. In the meantime, the district continues to focus on delivering excellent education to its students and supporting them through this transitional period​
