Kindergarten Registration Information

Parents who are registering new students to Leander ISD are encouraged to use our new online student registration available on the txConnect website. This will allow parents to complete the enrollment form at home and print it along with the remaining forms necessary for student registration.


Once you have completed the online process and printed out the required forms, please come to Cypress Elementary on April 19th and bring the items listed below. We will make copies here for your child's file.


  • Child's Birth Certificate
  • Child's Social Security Card
  • Child's immunization record

To aid us in placing your kindergartner for the 2018-2019 school year, please

take a few minutes to complete this Kindergarten Parent Input form.


By completing this form you will provide us with information that will help support our decision regarding the best class placement for your child. It is important that we consider your child's specific needs along with their learning styles, in order to make the best placement decisions.
