From April 24-28, Leander ISD celebrates Administrative Professionals Appreciation Week. During this week, the district acknowledges the hard work of the individuals who keep every corner of the district organized and running smoothly.

Administrative professionals include campus and district administrative assistants, registrars, office aides, attendance clerks, bookkeepers, receptionists and campus techs.

A message to #1LISD’s administrative professionals from Superintendent Bruce Gearing:

“We want to thank our administrative assistants. These folks are the ones who really make the machine run. They make sure that their administrators are where they need to be, when they need to be there, and that they know what they’re talking about when they get there. To our registrars on the campuses, you make it seem easy to keep track of all 42,000 of our students – we realize that it’s attached to finances and all other kinds of important reporting that we do to the state. Our office aides – we couldn’t do this job without you. When those lunch boxes come in late and have to get to the kids, you’re there to help us out. Your help in our offices are critically important. To our attendance clerks, there are 42,000+ students in this district times 176 days of attendance times at least five or six periods in the day. I don’t know how you keep track of it all, but good job, and thank you. To our bookkeepers, who make sure that every penny that comes in and goes out is kept track of, people don’t see you, but we know that you’re there. So thank you. To our campus techs that make sure that machines are up and running and making us look good, we appreciate you. And finally, to our receptionists, you are the face of the district. You are often the first person that people see, and you are the voice of the district, the first voice that people hear. You make us look great on a daily basis, and we know that you sometimes have to deal with difficult situations. So thank you, from the bottom of our heart, for everything that you do to change the lives of the people in our community.”
