Leadership LISD

Leadership Leander ISD is an opportunity that provides community members an inside look at the goals, operations and culture of Leander ISD. This program is an ongoing tradition in the district’s efforts to remain transparent and engaged with our community, allowing parents, community leaders and business partners the ability to get an “up-close and personal” look at how the district operates. Leadership LISD participants interactively explore first-hand how it all works and offer insightful feedback that supports LISD’s continuous improvement efforts.

The Leadership class meets once a month (usually the second Thursday) in September through May from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at various locations throughout the district.

Literacy Partners

Literacy Partners is a partnership with our faith-based community, pairing students and volunteers together to practice reading and engage in conversations about the books being read.

The purpose of the Literacy Partners initiative is to facilitate the goal that every child is reading on grade level by third grade. Literacy Partners serve with consistency and humility while keeping it simple. The program includes two 15 minute one-on-one reading sessions right outside the classroom door.
