Allen ISD School Year 2020-21
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Allen ISD is offering two learning options for parents during the 2020-21 school year: At-Home Learning and In-Person learning. In-Person learning is the traditional classroom learning format. At-Home Learning provides live, electronic instruction for families concerned about returning their children to a campus setting.
Instructional Delivery Models
Allen ISD will offer two options for instructional delivery for our students. Visit the links below to learn more about each option:
Allen ISD realizes that not all courses will effectively translate to a virtual learning environment, particularly specialized courses offered to secondary (7th – 12th grade) students (examples: an advanced science lab, welding, or a certified nursing assistant course). For these specialized courses that are not offered at home, students will have the option to either attend in-person, or AISD staff will work with your child to find a suitable replacement course. In addition, some specialized courses that are offered in at-home learning may require in-person learning experiences on campus. A listing of these specialized courses will be available on the AISD website. UIL extracurriculars, such as fine arts and athletics, will also be available as in-person activities for our at-home learners.
Regardless of which learning option you choose for your child, the expectations for coursework and the grading system will be the same for both in-person and at-home learning. Allen ISD believes this is the fairest and most equitable solution for all of our students. Applicable courses in 9th-12th grade will be included in calculating GPA and class rank for both in-person and at-home learning students.
