#FalconsNest In-Person Student Experience

Friday, February 25th

The purpose of this visit is to give students a tour and understanding of their 6th-8th grade experience. Our very own students will be presenting and driving much of this experience. This experience is for students only and is arranged during the school day with your respective elementary school. There is nothing you need to do, but we wanted you to know so you can talk to your kids about it.

MAP & ISIP Reports

In Leander ISD, we use a universal screener, such as MAP Growth and Istation’s Indicators of Progress (ISIP), to determine what the student knows and is ready to learn next. Throughout September 2021, students in kindergarten through 8th grade were administered the first baseline assessment. The assessment information will support teachers in knowing the instructional areas in which students have grown and are ready to learn.

Here's a website to help you better understand the MAP and ISIP reports your children's teachers are sending home. There are lots of great resources on this site to help you navigate these reports.
