Overall 3rd Grade Performance

Less than 20% of Leander ISD's student population is economically disadvantaged, a key predictor of student performance. 

 

LISD students should score much higher than the state average which includes many districts with 90% economically disadvantaged. 

 

When compared with similar districts, LISD performance does not measure up.

AP & IB Tests

60% of Glenn Students are failing 

Only kids prepared for the rigor of a college level course are supposed to be enrolled in AP/IB classes. The national tests are based on the curriculum.

Leadership should examine if the students are failing in just a few specific courses or across them all,  get to the bottom of why, and make changes to ensure these students can successfully pass AP and IP tests.

Overall Student Performance

LOWEST 25%

Leander ISD student performance is in the bottom quartile when compared with similar districts in terms of size and percent of economically disadvantaged students.
