Message from the Leander ISD Board of Trustees

Dear Leander ISD families,

There are no words to express our sense of loss and heartbreak after the tragic events in Santa Fe. A place of learning should never be the setting for violence, yet the loss of young life has once again touched our state and nation. We share in the anger and grief of the Santa Fe community and extend our offers of support.

As those entrusted with the oversight of public education in our community, there is no greater responsibility than ensuring our schools are safe, welcoming places for all students. Campus safety and security has been a focus of this board and this district for many, many years, and we will continue to explore solutions with the help of our community, partners in education and law enforcement.

Leander ISD staff work tirelessly to engage each student and respond to their emotional and educational needs. Counseling resources are available on every campus, with caring teachers and staff ready to assist any student that is going through a difficult time or who feels emotionally isolated.

The Leander ISD community will do what we always does in the face of tragedy: respond with conviction and kindness to help those in need. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Santa Fe community, and we stand in solidarity with them.

The Leander ISD Board of Trustees
