FAMILY INFORMATION
February 2nd and 3rd are student holidays. CPHS will be closed until 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 3 rd, so that our faculty and staff can attend the
Leander ISD Continuous Improvement Conference at Vista Ridge High School.
Go to http://schools.leanderisd.org/users/0096/docs/understanding-psat-nmsqt-results-presentation.pdf to view a PSAT presentation. There is also a
vast array of College and Career preparation information on LISD’s website at
http://classroom.leanderisd.org/default.aspx?CollegeandCareerReadiness. Additional questions can be directed to CPHS Dean of Instruction, Jennifer
Colman, at 512-570-1245 or [email protected]
This is the time of year when we have the possibility of inclement weather and delayed starts or snow days. In the event we have either of those, you
will receive a call from Leander ISD informing you. If your phone number has changed, or you no longer have a land line, please make sure that we

have your correct/current number to ensure that you get the message. You can also check your local news stations and the LISD website at
www.leanderisd.org.
Leander ISD tries to maintain an open student transfer option for its parents, but must close campuses (or specific grades at open campuses) to
inbound transfers when campus/grade level enrollment approaches capacity. We work to be sure that no safety issues arise from overcrowded
conditions. Enrollments and transfer requests are monitored daily throughout the year. Transfer requests can be submitted on-line beginning
Monday, February 9, 2015. Please be sure that you submit your transfer request(s) promptly, as the transfer request deadline is March 9,
2015 (with the exception of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten transfer requests, which will be accepted April 15 – April 29), and the district
will not consider any transfer requests submitted after that date until approximately two weeks prior to the start of school.
Please note that some campuses will not be accepting any new transfers due to their being at or over projected capacity. Existing transfer students at
all campuses who submit an application will be considered for approval after the March 9, 2015 deadline date.
Please note that a non-refundable $30.00 processing fee was implemented beginning September 1, 2011 for any student requesting a transfer, and
this fee does not guarantee approval to the requested campus. Again, the student transfer submission window opens on February 9, 2015.
If you do not have access to a computer, please feel free to stop by the campus and use one of the campus computers, or should you need assistance
with the transfer application, schedule a meeting with the registrar at the campus you would like your student to attend, so that they may assist you in
completing this application.
If you have specific questions, you may contact the registrar on your campus or email [email protected]
