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."
Cypress Elementary is PROUD to be a Leader in Me Campus where we LEARN, LIVE and LEAD with the 7 Habits!
We, the Cypress Community, will aim to create a rich learning environment and promote student ownership of life-long learning through collaboration, differentiation and positive support where ALL students feel safe, loved and respected and strive to reach their maximum potential in an ever-changing world.
We are excited to announce that our 2nd annual Science Fair has been scheduled for Thursday, April 27, 2017! We will still have the categories of Science Experiment, Reverse Engineering, and Invention, but have added a new category of Non-Fiction Book Study to the list of options. Permission forms are due by March 3rd, so start thinking about how you and your child can explore the world of science together and participate in this incredible event! One of our Cypress parents has created an awesome Cypress Elementary Science Fair t-shirt which will be available for purchase for all those who participate! You won’t want your child to miss this amazing learning opportunity! Sign up today! Please see below for the Information Packet for specifics and the Permission Slip which is due on March 3rd.

LISD Bus Route Information
Available Online Aug. 10
On Aug. 10, Leander ISD parents can enter their home address into Infofinder i, an online tool available on the LISD website, to look up their child’s bus number and pick-up/drop-off times and locations for the coming school year. In an effort to reduce expenses and ensure real-time accuracy, the district does not print and distribute bus route schedules prior to the start of school. Bus routes are subject to change, and so LISD parents are strongly encouraged to confirm their child’s bus information again the week prior to the start of school, Aug. 15-19. For transportation questions, please call 512-570-0700.
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.
