Leander ISD's Vision is that "Students will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."

Site-Based 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, September 2.
Los Comités de Planificación por Área (SBPC) necesitan su ayuda
Cada escuela en Leander ISD tiene un Comité de Planificación por Área (SBPC por sus siglas en inglés). Estos comités están compuestos de empleados del distrito, miembros de la comunidad, representantes de negocios y padres de familia. Los miembros del SBPC brindan sus aportes al Director(a) de la escuela en una amplia variedad de temas con el propósito de mejorar el desempeño de todos los estudiantes. Los comités trabajan en áreas tales como la planeación, el currículo, el presupuesto, como debe enfocarse el desarrollo de personal, los patrones de personal y organización de la escuela. Las elecciones para representantes de padres de familia se realizan cada otoño. Los padres solo pueden servir como representantes de padres en la escuela donde tienen matriculados a sus niños. Si usted quiere obtener más información acerca del consejo, nominarse a una de las posiciones de representantes de los padres o nominar a alguien más para estas posiciones, por favor llame a la escuela de su estudiante antes del viernes 2 de septiembre.
LISD Bus Route Information
Available Online Aug. 10
On Aug. 10, Leander ISD parents can enter their home address into Infofinder i, an online tool available on the LISD website, to look up their child’s bus number and pick-up/drop-off times and locations for the coming school year. In an effort to reduce expenses and ensure real-time accuracy, the district does not print and distribute bus route schedules prior to the start of school. Bus routes are subject to change, and so LISD parents are strongly encouraged to confirm their child’s bus information again the week prior to the start of school, Aug. 15-19. For transportation questions, please call 512-570-0700.

Do we have your email address and phone number?
This year we are making every effort to go paperless with as much of our school communication as possible. One of the things we have cut out is the printed Monthly Newsletter - we now send weekly emails that highlight things happening at Knowles as well as upcoming events. We also use the call out system for important information. PLEASE MAKE SURE WE HAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER! If you have not been receiving weekly emails, it means we don't have your information in our system. Call Mrs. Vasquez our Registrar to get your information updated so you know what's going on!
