Allen ISD will be hosting a Bond Background Meeting to provide more information on the 2020 Bond Election. Join Allen ISD for a Zoom webinar TONIGHT (Tuesday, 8/25 from 6 - 8 PM). There will be presentations from AISD's third-party consultants in the area of demographics and finances, as well as information from Allen ISD's CFO. The community is invited, and there will be time for questions.  

You must register to attend! Click here to register now!

This informational meeting is one in a series of presentations to provide as much information as possible about the 2020 Bond Election on November 3rd. This first meeting will not focus on individual projects in the bond proposal, and instead feature background information that was provided to Project Kids (the 80-member citizen advisory committee) this summer.
