Tuition Reimbursement Program for Educators

The AISD Tuition Reimbursement Program for Educators allows AISD staff members to apply for partial reimbursement of tuition toward an advanced degree. The program is offered each fall and spring of the school year and is extended into summer as funds allow. To date, the foundation has contributed over $140,000 to fund tuition reimbursement!

To be eligible to apply, a staff member must be currently employed and have taught a minimum of one full school year with the district or been employed one full school year with the district.

The AISD Human Resource Department distributes applications each semester and develops the application timeline. For more information on applying for tuition reimbursement, contact Alana Chisum, Director of Human Resources.

Teacher of the Year Awards

The Foundation For Allen Schools assists Allen ISD in recognizing outstanding education through the Teacher of the Year Awards. Each campus selects a "Campus Teacher of the Year" and the Foundation, in partnership with a local business or merchant, provides a gift to these teachers. From this group, one elementary and one secondary teacher are selected as the Allen ISD Teachers of the Year. The Foundation provides a $500 cash award to each of these teachers along with gifts and prizes provided by community partners.
