Communication on Academic Progress

Communication between the home and school is valuable in creating a learning partnership to support the academic growth of students. Each year, Allen ISD designates a specific window of time for teachers to conduct formal conferences with parents regarding student progress. Traditionally, this is scheduled on campus during the last week of October.


This year, elementary teachers will communicate with parents on academic progress through a variety of methods. Communication will occur during an extended period of time from now until mid-November and may include formal conferences, personalized phone calls, or academic reports via email. As always, if you have specific concerns, you are encouraged to reach out to your child’s teacher.

Allen STEAM Ambassadors Tutoring Program for 5th & 6th Graders

Allen STEAM Ambassadors (a student leadership program with a STEM/STEAM focus), provides a virtual tutoring service that was developed by the students in the program. The STEAM Ambassadors are top high school students that excel in science and math. The program was piloted a few weeks ago with 7th and 8th graders, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.


Starting tomorrow it will be open to students grades 5th -9th grades needing support in math and science. While it is not a replacement for tutoring with their teacher, some virtual students could benefit from this type of one-on-one virtual support.


Details on the program as well as the required forms/materials are included on the attached flyer.
