Leander ISD piloted Slack as a collaboration and internal communication tool for the School and Community Relations team, the Superintendent’s Cabinet, and its COVID-19 emergency response during the 2019-20 school year.
The district is launching the tool for all schools and staff in the 2020-21 school year.
Slack is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.
Employees need to have their email address and passwords available. Visit leanderisd.slack.com or use a mobile app (enter leanderisd.slack.com on the configure manually prompt) to access our Slack workplace. Using the Azure button, employees can enter their @leanderisd.org email address and password to access Slack.
