|Student Transfer Requests
for 2016-17 School Year
Due to projected enrollment size for the 2016-2017 school year, this campus has been closed to new transfers, except consideration will be given to siblings of students who currently attend and who will attend next year. Please be aware that if your student is not zoned to this campus or does not already attend this campus on an approved transfer, this campus is closed and will not be accepting any NEW transfer requests for the following school year, 2016-2017.
Children who currently attend the campus as a 4th-grader, either as a zoned student or as a transfer student, will be permitted to attend the current campus as a 5th-grade transfer in the next school year, and siblings will be permitted to transfer in on a space- and staff-available basis.
All requests to transfer/remain as a transfer must be submitted by the priority deadline date (March 20, 2016) each year in order to be considered, INCLUDING this year's 4th-graders.
Transfer applications from existing transfer students who are not in the 4th-grade will be considered after the priority transfer deadline date, and after available space and staffing have been determined. Parents/guardians will be notified of approval/denial of the transfer request no later than April 20, 2016. Except for approved current-year 4th-graders, there are NO guarantees that children who transfer in to a campus will be able to continue at that campus.
Please note that a non-refundable $30 processing fee was implemented beginning Sept. 1, 2011, for any student requesting a transfer, and this fee does not guarantee approval to the requested campus. When the student transfer submission window opens Feb. 15, 2016, please proceed to Leander ISD’s district website should you wish to submit a transfer request for your child. If you do not have access to a computer, please feel free to stop by the campus and use one of the campus computers. Should you need assistance with the transfer application, schedule a meeting with the registrar at the campus you would like your student to attend, so that s/he may assist you in completing this application.
LISD Adding 5 Minutes to the School Day in January 2016
Beginning Monday, Jan. 4, 2016, Leander ISD will be adding five minutes to the school day. Elementary campuses will end five minutes later, and high schools will start five minutes earlier, with the exception of Cedar Park High School, which will remain on the same schedule. The new school hours for LISD elementary campuses will be 7:45 a.m. – 2:50 p.m. and high schools will be 8:40 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. Middle school hours will not change, and Cedar Park High School hours will not change.
House Bill 2610, which was passed this last legislative session, requires that public school students receive 75,600 minutes of instruction, instead of 180 days. As a result, LISD is lengthening the school day by five minutes at the elementary and high school campuses (except CPHS). LISD middle schools are not impacted by the new law, nor is CPHS, as their school day already meets the requirements of the law.
If your student rides the bus and his or her route is impacted by this change, LISD Transportation services will notify you of your child’s new pick-up/drop-off time.
LISD añade 5 minutos al dia escolar a partir de enero de 2016
Comenzando el lunes 4 de enero de 2016, Leander ISD añadirá cinco minutos al día escolar. Las escuelas primarias terminarán cinco (5) minutos más tarde, y las escuelas preparatorias (high school) comenzarán cinco minutos más temprano, con excepción de Cedar Park High School que permanecerá con el mismo horario. Las nuevas horas escolares para las escuelas primarias de LISD serán de 7:45 am a 2:50 pm y las de escuela preparatoria (high school) serán de 8:40 am a 3:45 pm. El horario de las escuelas secundarias (middle school) no cambiará.
La ley de la Cámara de Representantes 2610 que pasó esta última sesión legislativa requiere que los estudiantes de escuelas públicas reciban 75,600 minutos de instrucción en vez de 180 días. Como resultado, LISD está alargando el día escolar por cinco minutos en las escuelas primarias y preparatorias. La excepción son CPHS y las escuelas secundarias (middle school) las cuales no se impactan por la nueva ley, ya que su día escolar ya cumple con los requisitos de la ley.
Si su estudiante usa el bus escolar y su ruta se afecta por este cambio, los servicios de Transporte de LISD le notificarán de la nueva hora de recogida y llegada de su niño(a).
Please bring the registration forms and copies of the following documents with you when you register your child:
· legal paperwork (divorce decrees, etc.)
- a copy of the student's birth certificate
- proof of residency (lease/contract, current utility bill)
- the student's Social Security card
- immunization record or affidavit of conscience exemption
- most recent report card and standardized test results
- withdrawal papers from your child's previous school
- a photo identification of parent/guardian
Site Base Planning Committees Need You!
Each campus within Leander ISD has a Site-Based Planning Committee (SBPC). These committees are composed of district employees, community members, business representatives and parents. SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students.
The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization. Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school.
If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call the campus your student attends no later than Friday, Sept. 4.
Enrollment Forms Available Online on March 30 for New LISD Students
Beginning on Monday, March 30, 2015, parents who are registering new students to Leander ISD
are encouraged to use our new online student registration. Online registration is available on the txConnect website
and will allow parents to complete the enrollment form at home and
print it along with the remaining forms necessary for student
registration. Read more...
The district’s online tool, txConnect, allows LISD parents to easily monitor their child’s achievement throughout the school year. LISD parents can use txConnect to access their child’s grades and assignments, view and print their child’s interim progress reports and report cards, view their child’s STAAR (or TAKS) results, immunizations, attendance and student discipline reports. And beginning this year, parents can use txConnect to view, update and print first-day packet forms. Connecting to your child’s learning through txConnect is a simple, two-step process.
