Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Leander ISD Secondary Summer School Office will be closed for summer break from June 28–July 9. We will return to the office July 12. Below are some frequently asked questions.

When will I hear from my teacher for the second session of summer school?

Students who register prior to July 12 will hear from their teachers on July 13. Teachers will send a welcome email with information that is specific to their course (Zoom link, Google Classroom, etc.). 

What do I do if I do not get an email from my teacher on July 13?

On July 14, this summer school page will have a Zoom link posted that will take you into a help session with our summer school office staff. 

Does attendance matter for morning teacher-led classes?

Yes, attendance is very important and is monitored very closely. On a student’s third absence, they are dropped from the course with no exceptions. Three (3) tardies equal one absence; being more than 15 minutes late or leaving class early is considered an absence. Each day of summer school is equal to about two weeks worth of curriculum during the school year, so the time in class is precious. 

What happens if our internet goes down?

If you lose connection, please contact the summer school office for us to help solve the problem. You can also contact the Help Desk for Leander ISD at 512-570-0566. If you do not reach out to the campus/district, we will not be able to help and you will be considered absent. 

Can I still register for the second session?

Yes, you can register at the website through July 15 at 1:30 p.m. Some courses are already full and therefore closed. You will see which courses are open/closed when you register through EdPay.

How many courses can I register for?

You can sign up for one teacher-led semester course in the morning and one semester course in the afternoon for credit recovery online through Edgenuity. Only register for one in the morning and one in the afternoon for each session for up to a total of 2 courses for the second session. If the afternoon online course is finished early enough, we will load another course at no cost to you. 

If we live in the district zone but attend a school other than a LISD school, can we attend summer school? 

Yes, you may attend our morning teacher-led classes. The afternoon online Edgenuity classes are only for LISD students. 

How do I register if I live in the district but do not attend LISD schools?

Please contact Kim Gogulski at kimberly.gogulski@leanderisd.org to make an appointment to register in-person. Registration is cash only. Families must bring the student’s birth certificate, photo ID and a utility bill with your local address/name.

Can I work on my Edgenuity course all summer?

No. The Edgenuity courses will remain open until June 30 at noon. They will all be disabled at that time. The content/progress will not be lost. Students who sign up for the 2nd session will have the courses re-loaded and will work from where they left off. Students who do not sign up for 2nd session, will work with their campuses in the fall and have opportunities to work on the courses at that time. No progress will be lost or deleted.
