The first-week enrollment data suggests Leander ISD will once again be among the state's fastest growing districts as it opens Elementary School #27 (Larkspur) and a new North Transportation Facility. 


For the first time, LISD’s student enrollment at the start of the year topped 40K (40,000), including 532 at Larkspur Elementary, the district’s newest school. To accommodate that rise in enrollment, Leander ISD now boasts 2,861 teachers.


Four campuses have new principals, including: 


  • Faubion Elementary School
  • Reagan Elementary School
  • Winkley Elementary School
  • Four Points Middle School

 

The district also launched an online enrollment initiative as part of its new student information system (SIS), streamlining the process for families.

“It’s exciting to see the growth in our district reflected in the smiling faces of our students and families,” said Board Secretary Grace Barber-Jordan, M.Ed. “It’s clear we have an exceptional group of students that will make us proud this year.”
