About Project Kids
Project Kids is a community study group that meets for a set period of time to review the facility needs of the district along with the financial and instructional impact of those new facilities. The Board of Trustees appointed the Project Kids 2015 Committee in November and the group's first meeting was on December 9.
 
Project Kids History
The Project Kids Committee helped form the Allen ISD bond proposals in 1995, 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2008. Here is a summary of the former Project Kids Committee work and outcomes:  Project Kids History Report.
 
Project Kids 2015
The 2015 Project Kids Committee reviewed five key facility areas including: Lowery Freshman Center, expansion of Allen High School, elementary school renovations, possible construction of an 18th elementary school and improvements/additions to safety, security, transportation and technology. The district is also interested in placing emphasis on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programs as we look at new or renovated secondary facilities.
