Continued Expansion of Pre-K
Research reflects that students who do not read at grade level by third grade will have a significantly more difficult time keeping up with their peers as they progress to graduation. Having programs available for children to start school “kindergarten ready” is a critical component to making sure all of our students are at grade level by third grade. This is especially important for our low socioeconomic families.
Continued Expansion of IB
We currently have an elementary IB program at Huffman and a high school IB program at Plano East. I would like to see that program connected K-12, so families who want the IB experience through their entire educational career can do so.
Continued Expansion of Dual Credit, AP and CTE
I will push for the expansion of our dual-credit and AP offerings and our career and technical education courses at the high school level. Whether a student pursues a college degree or a skill, trade or profession immediately after high school, our current programs prove that Plano ISD has the resources available to make these students successful. My goal would be to make sure we continue expanding these offerings and options to meet the needs of our students and our community.
