 volunteer committees

Leander ISD welcomes our community to support our students and teachers by volunteering on a districtwide or campus-based committee.


The Districtwide Educational Improvement Council (DWEIC) is a committee of parents, business and community members, teachers, principals, and other district staff who advise the Board in establishing and reviewing the District's educational goals and objectives, major districtwide classroom instructional programs, and approval of district-wide staff development.The district is seeking the following representatives for the DWEIC:

 

DWEIC meets approximately seven times a year, 5–6:30 p.m. The meetings are scheduled to be held at the LISD Leander Extended Opportunity (LEO) building located at 300 S. West Drive, Leander.  

If you are interested in applying to be a volunteer, please click here.  If you have questions about DWEIC or the application, please contact Michi Ishimura at 512-570-0242 or Michi.Ishimura@leanderisd.org. The deadline for submitting an application for 2018–19 school year is Monday, Aug. 27, 2018 at 8 a.m.


Each campus within Leander ISD has a Site-Based Planning Committee (SBPC). These committees are composed of district employees, community members, business representatives and parents. SBPC members provide input to the principal on a wide variety of subjects, with an aim of improving the achievement of all students. The committees address such areas as planning, curriculum, budgeting, staff development, staffing patterns and school organization.


Elections for parent representatives are held every fall. Parents can only serve as a parent representative at the campus where they have a child attending school. If you would like to find out more information about the council, run for one of the parent seats, or nominate someone for one of the seats, please call the campus your student attends.


The Student Health Advisory Committee is made up of school personnel, community members and parents. One of the duties of the SHAC is to recommend a coordinated health program for elementary and middle school students.
