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."

RHS SITE-BASED PLANNING COMMITTEE NEEDS YOU!
Site-Based Planning Committees Need You!
Each campus within Leander ISD has a Site-Based Planning Committee (SBPC). These committees are composed of district employees, community members, business representatives and parents. SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students. The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization. Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school. If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call the campus your student attends no later than Friday, September 2.
Los Comités de Planificación por Área (SBPC) necesitan su ayuda
Cada escuela en Leander ISD tiene un Comité de Planificación por Área (SBPC por sus siglas en inglés). Estos comités están compuestos de empleados del distrito, miembros de la comunidad, representantes de negocios y padres de familia. Los miembros del SBPC brindan sus aportes al Director(a) de la escuela en una amplia variedad de temas con el propósito de mejorar el desempeño de todos los estudiantes. Los comités trabajan en áreas tales como la planeación, el currículo, el presupuesto, como debe enfocarse el desarrollo de personal, los patrones de personal y organización de la escuela. Las elecciones para representantes de padres de familia se realizan cada otoño. Los padres solo pueden servir como representantes de padres en la escuela donde tienen matriculados a sus niños. Si usted quiere obtener más información acerca del consejo, nominarse a una de las posiciones de representantes de los padres o nominar a alguien más para estas posiciones, por favor llame a la escuela de su estudiante antes del viernes 2 de septiembre.

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.
ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMS & SCHOLARS INFORMATION
LEANDER, Texas, August 8, 2016 – Leander ISD Interim Superintendent Karie Lynn McSpadden reported that 971 students earned 1,054 Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the 2016 AP Exams. This is a 27-percent increase from the previous year’s AP Scholar distinctions. Click hereto view the press release.
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.
