Communicating with the School Board

stock104

The Leander ISD Board of Trustees is elected at-large by LISD parents and community members to represent them in governing and setting policy for the school district. As public representatives, the LISD Board of Trustees' goal is to make decisions for the good of the greatest number of students. Community input is welcomed.

The Leander ISD school board provides a number of opportunities for community input:

  • The LISD Board of Trustees meets twice each month with a "Citizens Comments" period provided at each school board meeting. Citizen Comments are limited to three minutes per person, and are usually held at or near 7:00 p.m. at each meeting.
  • All Board Meeting agendas are posted at the LISD Administrative Offices and on the Leander ISD website 72 hours prior to each meeting.
  • Parents and community members may contact both the full Leander ISD Board and the Superintendent in a single e-mail via LISD's Governance Team e-mail account. Communications to the LISD Governance Team are sent to the Board of Trustees members and the Superintendent of Schools. When possible, the School/Community Relations Office will respond to the patron with additional information regarding their concern or request. Board members also receive copies of all responses to patrons.
