LEEF Board of Directors

The Leander Educational Excellence Foundation (LEEF) works with Leander ISD (LISD) and other organizations in our area to help achieve district-aligned goals and objectives. LEEF is governed by a Board of Directors representing a large spectrum of the LISD community. The Board works cooperatively with, but independently from, Leander ISD and its Board of Trustees.
