Welcome Back!

Welcome Back!
Posted on 08/10/2018


It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you back for another great year of learning. Leander ISD continues to be a destination district for many reasons, not the least of which is the incredible commitment to excellence our community fosters each and every year. We live and work among talented, caring people that know the value of public education and its promise to all students to help prepare them for college, career and life.

LISD’s reputation for excellent schools and strong student programs continue to attract new families, resulting in about 1,000 new students moving into the district every year. We will welcome approximately 40,000 total students this month, and we will engage these children in enriching learning opportunities across our 42 (next year it will be 43!) schools.

The 2018–19 school year has us all anticipating continued success and achievement for our students and staff alike. Professional learning opportunities and leadership initiatives have been and will continue to be a cornerstone of our growth as a district. Our fine arts, athletics, extracurricular and Career and Technical Education programs are recognized as among the best in the state and the nation. Our students have never been better prepared to thrive in the world that awaits them.

From the first day of school on August 16 to LISD Graduation in May/June 2019, our journey together will undoubtedly be full of memorable experiences and challenges. Thank you for your support, dedication and enthusiasm for our shared purpose: to engage, inspire and achieve for lifelong success. I look forward to working with you during what promises to be an exceptional year of learning.
