Leander ISD's Vision is that "Students will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."

A-F State Accountability Ratings Released
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released the "What If" A-F ratings for Domains I-IV based on data from the 2015-16 school year. To reiterate the communication sent to parents from earlier in the week, these new A-F ratings are hypothetical; in August 2016, TEA released the official state accountability ratings for the 2015-16 school year in which each LISD campus and the district received a "Met Standard" rating.
The LISD School Spotlight looks at Cedar Park Middle School. These School Spotlights will be used to showcase student life and the vibrant culture at every school in Leander ISD – through stories, photos and videos. Check it out!
PSAT Scores will be discussed in designated classes determined by the campus during the week of Jan. 9 for all students in 8th-11th grade. Students' will be emailed their access code to view their score report online, and teachers will walk students through on how to connect their scores to Kahn Academy, which is a personalized study plan based on PSAT results for SAT.

CPMS STUDENT LED CONFERENCES
Student Led Conferences will be held on the following dates and times:
We want to inform you that Leander ISD has changed the time all middle school buildings will open to the public to 8:10 a.m. This means that all of our automatic doors will not open before 8:10 each morning. Our new official building hours will now be 8:10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Please remember, there will be no teachers on duty for supervision before 8:10 a.m. or after 4:30 p.m. Our school day for students continues to remain the same and is from 8:55 a.m. – 4:05 p.m.
•SCHOOL HOURS - The school opens at 8:10 A.M. each day. The tardy bell rings at 8:55. Dismissal is at 4:05pm
•TRAFFIC FLOW PATTERNS FOR PICK UP AND DROP OFF - NO LEFT TURNS from Sunchase Blvd. into the front parking lot are allowed during morning drop off and afternoon pickup by ordinance of the City of Cedar Park. The restricted times are posted on the traffic signs near the entrance. The main parent drop off/pick up for students is in the parking lot on the east side of the building. That parking lot entrance is on Cypress Creek Blvd., located between the school and the Athletic Field. The diagram of the proper drop off traffic flow for this area is listed on our website.
LISD Reminds Families that Missing School Matters
Student absenteeism is a concern for school districts statewide, including LISD. It is estimated that Central Texas students are absent 2.4 million days of school each year. All absences, whether excused or unexcused, are a lost opportunity to learn. Families can help reinforce the value of education by keeping a few things in mind:
Don’t make others sick. If your child is ill, he or she should stay home.
Try to schedule appointments when they are least disruptive to learning.
If your child must miss school for a medical appointment, get a note from his or her doctor.
Use the LISD calendar, available at www.leanderisd.org, to plan trips and vacations to line up with school holidays.
Remember that every absence is a lost opportunity to learn.
Absences cost your child’s school about $40 per day (per absent student) in state funding.
