Leander ISD is committed to listening to students and their families to understand their needs so it can effectively engage and inspire every child. Students in grades 3-12 and all parents are invited to take the district’s Campus Climate Survey, which opened Feb. 6 and has been extended through March 9.

The mobile-friendly survey asks for feedback on student support, academic preparation, parent engagement, safety and behavior, school leadership, and educational programs and services. It also asks about communication preferences and school operations, including facilities, transportation, and child nutrition.
