About the LEO Center

Leander Extended Opportunity Center (LEO) is Leander Independent School District's disciplinary alternative school. LEO serves all grade levels of students (K-12) who commit major offenses or who are involved in a series of less serious offenses. Students are admitted to the LEO Center following a referral by the home campus.

Students arrive by bus or by parent vehicle from all of the different schools within the district. Each day begins with a silent reading period. We are very fortunate to have our own library. The library collection focuses on the types of books our students enjoy reading. Students are allowed to select the books they read and many say this is the first time they have ever read a book from cover to cover.

All students are assigned to a classroom on the first day. Unlike regular campuses, where students move from class to class, students at LEO remain at their assigned desks throughout the day. Teachers move from room to room in order to cover the classes. Most of the time students work independently with tutorial guidance and assistance from teachers and staff. Periodically, teachers take small groups of students to alternate classrooms for individual or small-group instruction.
