Allen ISD recognizes the importance of parent and community involvement and strives to support those activities in every way possible. The district greatly appreciates the commitment of its parents to invest time, effort and financial support to the students involved in the supported activities.
Booster clubs are parent organizations established to promote school programs or complement student groups or activities. A booster club’s purpose may be to support a student group or program at a particular school, or various student groups or programs at various schools. Support may be as simple as providing refreshments for a particular event or it may be as complex as raising money for an out-of-state competition. The booster club works through the principal to provide assistance for the planned activities of the student group; however, the booster club does not have the authority to decide the activities or trips in which the student group will participate. The parents and the booster club may provide suggestions about particular activities; however, the principal or other appropriate administrator is responsible for the final decision.
