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."

A-F State Accountability Ratings Released
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released the "What If" A-F ratings for Domains I-IV based on data from the 2015-16 school year. To reiterate the communication sent to parents from earlier in the week, these new A-F ratings are hypothetical; in August 2016, TEA released the official state accountability ratings for the 2015-16 school year in which each LISD campus and the district received a "Met Standard" rating.
First 300 kids get a free Science spirit stick at the PTA table!

Our first annual International Fair was a major success!
With the help of the Reagan PTA and our wonderful parent volunteers, Reagan Elementary was proud to host our first annual International Fair. All students from kindergarten to fifth grade took a trip to eleven countries during their specials classes. Each country displayed cultural and regional facts in a variety of interactive ways. The International Fair brought all students together with a great lesson of diversity and acceptance.

As an incentive to collect as many pajamas as possible, Coach Carroll made a bet with our #reaganrays if we collected 450 pairs of pajamas or more, he would dye his hair pink.
Reagan Elementary is so proud to announce we have collected 518 pairs of pajamas to present to children in need in the local shelters! In addition to receiving a pajama, each child will receive a book from Scholastic.
REGULAR SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IS VERY IMPORTANT!
LISD and Reagan Elementary Remind Families thatMissing School Matters Student absenteeism is a concern for school districts statewide, including LISD. It is estimated that Central Texas students are absent 2.4 million days of school each year. All absences, whether excused or unexcused, are a lost opportunity to learn. Families can help reinforce the value of education by keeping a few things in mind:
Don’t make others sick. If your child is ill, he or she should stay home.
Try to schedule appointments when they are least disruptive to learning.
If your child must miss school for a medical appointment, get a note from his or her doctor.
Use the LISD calendar, available at www.leanderisd.org, to plan trips and vacations to line up with school holidays.
Remember that every absence is a lost opportunity to learn.
Absences cost your child’s school about $40 per day (per absent student) in state funding.
Make school a family priority!
Consider Walking or Biking to School this Fall
Cooler weather is here! Leander ISD and Reagan Elementary are encouraging students and families to consider walking or biking as an option for getting to and from school.
Here are some reasons to support walking and bicycling to school:
It’s fun! Walking or biking can bring a sense of joy and independence.
It promotes healthier habits! The trip to school can help children and adults get the physical activity they need.
It promotes a cleaner environment! Ditching the car and walking or biking to school can reduce traffic congestion and air-polluting emissions.
Community benefits! Walking or biking to school reduces traffic congestion, boosts a sense of community and improves neighborhood connections that benefit the entire school community.
Thank you for doing your part in ensuring the safety of all of our students during morning and afternoon drop off and pick up. Your cooperation is appreciated with driving slowly, in the designated direction and using the crosswalk to cross. Please remember to remain in your cars during drop off and pick up to speed up the process and to maintain student safety. We must emphasize that double parking and/or leaving your car unattended is not allowed. Considerations will be made concerning tardy slips in the event that the car lines are long or the weather is bad in the morning. Please use this videoas guidance for our traffic pattern.
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.
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.
