Leander ISD believes a Professional Learning Community is the heart of high quality, job-embedded professional learning and is the most effective manner to ensure academic growth for all students. Leander ISD will function as a Professional Learning Community, at all levels of the organization, through highly effective collaborative teams that center all work on improving student learning. Leander ISD provides at least one instructional coach on every campus. The campus instructional coach provides ongoing, job-embedded professional development for campus teachers and collaborative teams in order to improve teacher practices and student learning.
