In-Person Learning

  • In Person logo  

    Students attend school on a regular instructional schedule and engage in face-to-face learning on campus during school hours. Elementary students are assigned to grade-level classes taught by teachers at their home campus. Secondary students in grades 7-12 follow their class schedules by transitioning to different classrooms for course instruction.  

    Classroom instruction will be designed for mastery of student learning outcomes based on the academic standards called the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for each content area.  

    The following are characteristics of In-Person Learning:

    • Available for students in Prekindergarten through Grade 12
    • Student participation required 5 full days per week
    • Implementation of preventive safety measures
    • Instruction provided by Allen ISD teachers
    • Instruction in core content and elective areas
    • District curriculum, unit sequencing and pacing of instruction
    • Social-emotional support
    • Accommodations and support services provided
