Parent BrightBytes Survey Info

Dear Cypress Elementary Parents & Guardians:

In our continued effort to ensure all families have a voice in our mission to inspire and equip all students to succeed, we would like to hear more from you about your student’s experience using technology to enhance learning. This survey is specifically designed to help us determine the impact of technology in Leander ISD. Your involvement will help us to improve learning outcomes and focus on providing meaningful experiences that drive student achievement.

This survey should only take five minutes to complete. All responses are strictly confidential. No one at Leander ISD will know if you participate or be able to connect you to your answers. Please use the button below (Parent Technology Survey) to find the survey.

If you have multiple students in the district at different campuses, you may either take the survey once for your oldest student’s campus, or you may submit a separate survey for each of your student’s campuses. Each survey is campus specific. Once the survey closes on Friday, April 13, each campus will receive reports including specific feedback from parents, teachers and students to aid in evaluating current initiatives and planning for the future.

Returning Student Class Placement for 2018-2019 School Year

It's hard to believe it is that time of year again to start planning our 2018-2019 class placement. However, as we begin our preparation efforts we would like to give you an opportunity to provide any insight or information that you believe would be important for us to know.

Please be aware that there are many factors that go into making a class placement for a student.

The information you provide to us in the parent input form will assist us in making a successful placement. Click on the purple button below to find the parent input form.

Please send an email, with your 5th grade child's first and last name in the subject line, to by May 18th containing the following:

  • Two (2) pictures of your 5th grade child: one from age 0-3 years and one current.

- What I love most about you is...

- The first word that comes to mind when we think of you is...

**Please keep in mind that each kiddo gets only one slide which will be seen for about 7-8 seconds, so we ask that you keep it brief--20 words max.
