LISD implements new policy regarding GPA/class rank on transcripts

by Emary Greene, Staff Writer

Beginning this year, the Leander Independent School District is implementing a new class rank policy regarding transcripts.

  • Class rank information will be provided to all students, but will not automatically be printed on transcripts. By law, class rank will be calculated to determine top ten percent.

  • Once you have made the decision to report or not report rank you must fill out what is called the Rank Choice Form. This could be found in the packet given to your senior son or daughter during their senior counselor meeting  that was either on Thursday, September 19 or Friday, September 20. This form has to be filled out and turned in to the registrar by October 15, 2013. If you do not turn it in before Oct. 15, your transcript will not be printed.

  • Some colleges you may be considering require that you include class rank as well as GPA on your transcript.

If you are in need of any further information you may visit the LHS website at, and view a powerpoint that gives more detailed information to help you and your student make a decision.
