The Rouse High School community vision is to be accountable to each other through hard work, relationships, and integrity in order to create a safe, encouraging, and respectful culture that honors all student stories and fosters lifelong learning.
Leander ISD's Vision is that "Students will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."

Now that AP exam registration is complete it is time to focus on preparing for the tests. We have several Saturday mock exam opportunities coming up in April. If your child is taking an AP exam encourage them to sign up. Please check the signup sheet for courses, dates, and times. AP Human Geography is using an alternate signup sheet so please see your AP teacher.
If your course is not listed, please check with your AP teacher to determine plans for preparing for the exams.
Many students are taking their SAT and ACT tests this spring. Developing a testing plan is an important step in preparing for college admissions.
The LISD College and Career Readiness site has multiple free resources to help students.

A-F State Accountability Ratings Released
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released the "What If" A-F ratings for Domains I-IV based on data from the 2015-16 school year. To reiterate the communication sent to parents from earlier in the week, these new A-F ratings are hypothetical; in August 2016, TEA released the official state accountability ratings for the 2015-16 school year in which each LISD campus and the district received a "Met Standard" rating.
Voluntary transfers will be permitted to transfer to other open high school campuses within the district on a space and staffing available basis.
Once a student transfer request is approved at the high school level, the student will be allowed to complete his/her high school years at the approved campus, subject to the terms and conditions noted on the transfer request form, as well as the requirement to maintain residence within the boundaries of Leander ISD.
If your child is an athlete, there are additional requirements that affect eligibility. An approved transfer does not make your child athletic eligible. Please contact the Athletics office (570-0170) to discuss eligibility.
Congratulations to the RHS 2016-2017 National Merit Commended, National Merit Semi-Finalist & National Hispanic Scholarship Recipients.
National Merit Commended: (L-R) Jordan Rampy, Adam Eckert, Carlos Tafur, Julia Stein, Landon Skinner, Taylor Shelley, Joshua Sanders, Savannah Crosby, Elijah Mitchell, Calvin Nurjadin & Larry Shen. Not pictured: Alyssa Jingling & Madison Schulz
National Merit SemiFinalist: Tiffani Burnett and Daniel Myers

BUS ROUTING INFORMATION
On Aug. 10, Leander ISD parents can enter their home address into Infofinder i, an online tool available on the LISD website, to look up their child’s bus number and pick-up/drop-off times and locations for the coming school year. In an effort to reduce expenses and ensure real-time accuracy, the district does not print and distribute bus route schedules prior to the start of school. Bus routes are subject to change, and so LISD parents are strongly encouraged to confirm their child’s bus information again the week prior to the start of school, Aug. 15-19. For transportation questions, please call 512-570-0700.
TX CONNECT - PARENT & STUDENT WEB PORTAL
Leander ISD utilizes a web portal, txConnect, that allows parents and students to viewgrades,assignments(grades 2-12),STAAR (and TAKS) results,immunizations,attendanceand discipline information(grades EE-12) online. LISD is committed to providing parents with the information they need to be engaged in their child’s education, because research has shown that students tend to perform better in school when their parents are actively involved in their learning. The txConnect program will be the most comprehensive source for information regarding your child’s academic progress.
With your txConnect account you will be able to view, update and print the forms that make up your child(ren)’sfirst day of school packet. Another benefit of a txConnect account is that you will be able to view and print your student’sinterim progress report(IPR) andreport cardin txConnect rather than receiving one through the mail or in your student’s Wednesday Folder. The grade reports that you receive will look identical to those that are mailed home and will be replaced every grading period when a new report is produced.
Click hereto learn more about the txConnect Two-Step.
Official transcript requests should be made through Parchment (please click the button below). Transcript requests will be sent electronically or mailed to the college or university and cannot be mailed to a parent or a student. *Please allow at least 48 hours to process transcript requests.
ACT & SAT Scores ACT & SAT must be sent directly to your college or university from www.act.org or www.collegeboard.com. *ACT & SAT scores are not included on transcripts.
All secondary campuses are now using the RAPTOR Visitor Management System for their visitor check in process. The RAPTOR system reads visitor drivers’ licenses, compares information to all national sex offender databases and alerts campus administrators if a match is found. If no match is found, visitors will receive a printed visitor badge that includes their photo.
Every time a parent or community member visits a campus, he or she will need to show a valid government-issued identification to the front office staff for RAPTOR verification. Visitors will be asked to use the visitor badge printed by the RAPTOR system to go beyond the school office. Visitors will also need to check out through the front office when they leave the campus.
In addition to enhancing current school security measures already in place at secondary campuses, the RAPTOR system will streamline campus day-to-day operations. It will replace the campus sign-in sheets and may assist with attendance management. The RAPTOR system adds another layer to school security, as it will provide a consistent system to track campus visitors, while alerting campus officials of visitors who may potentially pose a threat to students and staff members.
LISD is committed to student safety. The RAPTOR system is one piece of the district’s security measures.
Checking Students Out of School: Permit To Leave WITH a Parent Note: To facilitate this process please instruct your student to bring a note, signed by a parent/guardian, to the reception office prior to the beginning of 2nd period. Students will immediately receive a permit to leave that will enable them to sign-out at the reception office and meet their parent/guardian in the front parking lot. There will be no need to come in the building to sign them out when they use this check-out process.
Permit To Leave WITHOUT a Parent Note: We are unable to accept phone calls for a student release. If the need arises during the school day for a student to leave campus, and he/she does not have a note from a parent/guardian, a parent/guardian must come to the receptionist desk, provide a photo ID, and sign-out the student. For your student's safety, permits to leave will not be delivered until you come in the building and show your photo ID. Please be advised that there may be a delay in this process depending on the availability of staff to deliver a permit to leave. We strongly encourage you to adopt the first option as it is the most efficient method to have your student released from school.
Please encourage your student to come to school with everything they need for the day. To minimize disruption of instructional time, we are no longer able to send a pass to your student to retrieve items left in the reception office. This includes lunch/lunch money, school supplies, homework, athletic equipment, etc. However, we understand that occasionally the need arises to drop off an item. You may drop off items at the table in the receptionist office for retrieval by your student. After dropping off items in the front office, parents will need to communicate with their student and ask them to retrieve the item during passing periods or lunch.
As a reminder, because of Federal law, parents may not provide food for students other than their own.
As stated in the High School Handbook, page 18:
"during meals, students are permitted only in designated areas.
Students are not allowed to have food delivered to school from commercial
All attempted deliveries from commercial establishments will be returned to
the delivering establishment.
Thank you for partnering with us in your students education.
All students driving a vehicle on campus will need to purchase a parking permit. Applications are available in the AP Office A-K. The cost is $40. If you are paying with a parent’s check, please include their phone number and driver’s license on the check. Online payment is also available on the RHS website (click on the link above). If you pay online, please bring a copy of the receipt with you. An application will need to be filled out for all drivers even if you have paid online. The deadline for purchasing a permit for students who are currently driving is Friday, September 4th. Applications are available throughout the year for any new drivers and should be obtained prior to driving on campus. Please see Mrs. Cmet in the AP Office if you have any questions.
