UPDATE: Information on STAAR Retests for 5th and 8th Grades
June 16, 2016
Based upon the state’s recent decisions regarding the third administration of the state assessment (STAAR), LISD will be proceeding as follows:
The Rising STAAR Camp for 5th graders and the STAAR Academy for 8th graders, who did not meet standard on STAAR Math and/or Reading, will continue through Monday, June 20, at Cedar Park High School. This decision continues to emphasize our district’s focus on student learning and the opportunity to provide interventions to support this learning.
Grade placement decisions will be based on LISD promotion policy which states: “In grades 4-8, promotion to the next grade level shall be based on an overall average of 70 on a scale of 100 based upon course-level, grade-level standards (essential knowledge and skills) for all subject areas and a grade of 70 or above in three of the following areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.” Based upon this promotion policy, individual letters will be mailed by June 23rd addressing grade placement for students.
If you have any further questions at this time, please feel free to contact me at 512-570-0259 or our State Assessment Coordinator, Jennifer Freeman, at 512-570-0262.*
*Please note that our district offices will be closed from June 29th through July 10th.

Fight the Bite: Protect Yourself Against Mosquitos
Mosquito season is right around the corner. Mosquito bites may cause illness. Many people who get a mosquito disease will not feel sick, but some cases can cause serious illness or death. Children, elderly and those with certain health conditions may be at a higher risk of getting sick if they become infected. Protect yourself, your family and our community from mosquitoes with the 3-Ds:Defend use an EPA-approved insect repellant; Dress dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk; Drain drain standing water around your home, so mosquitoes don¹t have a place to breed.
For more information about mosquito surveillance initiatives in Williamson County, contact WCCHD Environmental Health Services at 512-943-3620 or visit www.wcchd.org.
|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.
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

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.
