Plano ISD is one of the best school districts in the country, but it is not perfect and there should always be room for exploration and experimentation if necessary. Ms. Picard wants to keep the things that are working for our schools while being open to conversations regarding areas of improvement. We can never be complacent, particularly when we are dealing with our children.

John F. Kennedy once said that a child miseducated is a child lost. Ms. Picard does not want to lose a single child in Plano ISD due to the assumption that the way things have always been done is the way things should always be done.

Ms. Picard will engage in an ongoing dialogue with Plano ISD stakeholders and her vote on the Board of Trustees will reflect that dialogue honestly and accurately.

    “I endorse Carissa Picard because during our time as military spouses, we learned how important it is to serve our nation honorably and with intention to support the mission - in this case, our community's children. As an educator and a mother, there is no one I would trust more to advocate for what is best for kids. We deserve to have our interests represented fairly and with grace. From my personal experience, she will go the extra mile to make the best decision possible no matter what challenge she faces.”
