Leander ISD to Consider Changing School Start Times


  • Leander ISD is considering a change when it comes to class starting times
  • The consideration is partly due to traffic and construction issues surrounding some of its schools
  • Along with construction projects on Ranch to Market Road 620 and Ranch to Market Road 2222,   Leander ISD is also adding about 1,000 students each year
  • At the Leander ISD board of trustees meeting tonight, a committee, comprised of administrators, board members and others, will present possible changes to help students get to school on time
  • One way to alleviate congestion and tardiness would be to change bell schedules for the district
  • Currently, the schools follow these start and finish times:
  • Elementary school: 7:45 a.m.-2:50 p.m.
  • Middle school: 8:55 a.m.-4:05 p.m.
  • High school: 8:40 a.m.-3:45 p.m.
  • The change in bell schedules could also mean more hours for bus drivers as they could go from a two route a day schedule to a three route a day schedule
  • The committee is set to speak with parents and schools to find out if changes could work and will make final recommendations
