Leander ISD commits to providing equitable educational access and opportunity for every student every day. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion seeks to achieve this by professionally developing staff along the continuum of reflective practice, using data to address educational gaps and to improve access and opportunity for all students. This office focuses on calling people into the conversation, not calling people out, as this is the best way to achieve unity of effort and to benefit all.
