AISD Instructional Choice Timeline Details
AISD understands that families may want to change their instructional delivery model selection during the school year. Due to the scheduling complexities inherent in both At-Home Learning and In-Person Learning, parents are asked to make a commitment for at least one full nine-weeks grading period.
The chart below outlines the timeframe for making a change in the selected instructional delivery model prior to the start of each new grading period. Parents wishing to change their child’s participation in either At-Home Learning or In-Person Learning for the next nine-weeks grading period will need to complete the Commitment Form. Information will be sent to all parents about the process to request a change.
All changes will be effective on the first day of each new nine-weeks grading period as listed below:

North Texas Giving Day is Thursday, 9/17!
Dear Vaughan Parents,
This Thursday is North Texas Giving Day! Will you join me and support our Foundation For Allen Schools? The Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the learning experience in Allen ISD.
We do this through three programs: classroom grants, scholarships for AHS seniors, and support for Allen teachers including tuition reimbursement, recognition and training. To date we have invested more than $2.6 million dollars into students and teachers through our programs in Allen ISD.
Now here’s the really great news…on Thursday, you can make a donation and support your child’s campus! Vaughan Elementary has five Foundation grants for 2020-21! They total $4,004.00! Go to www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org and search for Foundation For Allen Schools; make your donation and in the information box specify that it be used for Vaughan Elementary School. This donation will help fund future grants at Vaughan!
We hope you will join us on Thursday as we get up and give on this special day! Learn more at AISDfoundation.org. Working together our community can make tomorrow better for all!
Thank you –
Foundation For Allen Schools
