8th to 9th Grade Transition

8th grade parents and guardians,

It is time for 9th grade registration. On February 7 all 8th grade students met with counselors from his/her zoned high school to discuss and select courses for 9th grade. If a student receives a transfer approval or moves to a new attendance zone in Leander ISD, his/her choice sheet will be sent to the correct high school.

Each student was given a folder containing a 9th grade choice sheet, a core course recommendation sheet with individual student data, and a copy of his/her 4 year plan. Please carefully review these documents with your student. The course suggestion sheet and choice sheet need to be signed and returned to your student’s social studies teacher by Friday, February 16th.

The high school counselors and I will be working together to ensure a smooth transition for your student. Below you will find contact information for the Glenn and Leander High School counselors. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
