Leander ISD and Liberty Hill ISD have experienced growth over the last several years, which led both districts to hold bond elections in May.

LISD's bond will fund modernization and repurposing projects as well as new facilities, and LHISD's bond includes funding for three new schools. LHISD also pushed up the opening of Legacy Ranch High School to fall 2024.

Student enrollment

LISD is projected to serve about 1,000 more students in the 2023-24 school year than in the year prior. The district has experienced a 7.9% increase in overall enrollment from 2020-21.

Meanwhile, LHISD's enrollment has increased by 56.76% during that timeframe, rising to a projected enrollment of 8,683 for the 2023-24 year, according to district estimates.

Student statistics, 2022-23

Both LISD and LHISD have a lower percentage of economically disadvantaged students and English learners than the state average, data from the Texas Education Agency shows. The districts' percentages of special education students are similar to one another and just about one percentage point higher than the state average.

Total teachers and salaries

The growth in the number of full-time teachers in both LISD and LHISD has mimicked the increase in students, according to TEA data.

Additionally, both districts have increased their starting teacher salary by more than 10% since 2020-21.
