Fall Family Survey

Families - we want your feedback! As always, the health, safety, and welfare of Allentown students, staff, and community is our top priority.

K-12 Virtual Registration

Please use this form to register for ASD's K-12 high-quality cyber option for your child for the first quarter. 

Based on our Opening of Schools Family Survey many families indicated a concern about their students returning to school in fall.  In order to address these concerns, ASD will offer a high-quality cyber option for our students K-12. At this time we are allowing families to opt into this high-quality cyber option for the first quarter of school (September 8, 2020 - November 11, 2020). You will have an opportunity within the survey to indicate if you prefer to remain in this program beyond November. 

This information will help District leaders to finalize plans to reopen our buildings this fall.
