Research shows that student reading scores drop between the end of one school year and the beginning of the next. This has been dubbed the "Summer Slide." The idea is not that students magically become less-skilled readers from June to August. Rather, many students do not read during the summer; therefore, they are not practicing their reading skills. To help combat the "Summer Slide," Leander ISD encourages all students and parents to continue reading all year long. Closing the gap, eliminating summer slide, and promoting a life-long love of reading - one book, one kid at a time!

Here is how you can contribute to the Summer Reading for All Book Drive:

• Staff, parents, volunteers and community members are invited to bring a new or gently-used book or two to any LISD school library beginning Monday, Feb. 18 through April 26.
• Don’t have any books to donate? Donations will be accepted - checks can be made out to Leander ISD.
• Support LEEF while shopping on AmazonSmile.
• Need an idea of a new book to donate? Click here to check out our Amazon Wishlist.
