While our buildings were closed during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, we created a live Facebook and YouTube broadcast for our district leadership team to connect with families and the community. Superintendent Bruce Gearing, Ed.D. talks about the most important topics of the week. He invites experts from our Leander ISD staff to speak on the Hot Topics. We share a story or interview from a school. We respond to our audience’s questions. Then, we close every show with a performance from a school, staff member, or student.
