Leander ISD takes great pride in highlighting our students, teachers and staff for their accomplishments throughout the school year. One way the district does so is by honoring them at an LISD Board of Trustees meeting.
The criteria for recognition may vary occasionally, but the district tries hard to maintain a standard that is fair across multiple academic, fine arts and athletic endeavors. The award or honor must:
- be a top-3 in state finisher OR national semi-finalist or finalist AND
- be the “end of your award journey” (so if you won state and there’s a national competition, we wait until the national competition is done).
When the above guidelines are unclear as they relate to a certain discipline or field of study, the district works with the program director to ensure that it adheres to these standards as closely as possible.
