Parent and Student District Handbook

HandbookThe Parent and Student District Handbook is adopted by the Allentown School District Board of School Directors every year to help create a safe and orderly academic environment where students can receive, and District personnel can deliver, a balanced education without disruption or interference. The Handbook reviews responsible behavior by students, District personnel, parents and guardians, and other visitors. Parents/guardians are expected to review the Handbook with their children and encourage them to conduct themselves appropriately at all times. Printed versions of the Handbook are provided to all students at the beginning of the school year.
