Dripping Springs Education Foundation UPCOMING EVENTS
WE ARE EXCITED AND ENERGIZED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES FOR 2019-2020!
The past year has been full of transformation for DSEF as the Board of Directors explored the Foundation’s vision and impact across DSISD.
DSEF’s new vision is simple and compelling: TO ENGAGE OUR COMMUNITY TO PROVIDE MORE STUDENTS WITH BETTER OPPORTUNITIES. After examining the landscape of our community and the needs of the students and teachers, the Board of Directors committed to a bold, new vision for the future that will deepen DSEF’s reach and ability to fund the financial needs of DSISD while supporting more students and teachers than ever before. This new vision includes funding much needed mental health and student wellness positions and offering new channels for investing in our students through DSEF. DSEF will fundraise at new levels, engage more DSISD families, and involve community investors like never before.
DSEF’s first step in making its vision a reality is a three-year commitment to provide critical staffing needs in DSISD including:
- A full-time mental health professional to the staff at Dripping Springs High School
- A half-time counselor at each elementary school in addition to the one full-time counselor
DSEF will provide funding for the next three years to support these critical positions making its total commitment to DSISD and mental health $645,000. Lou Mandy Bruggman, executive director of DSEF said,
“We are honored to step up during this crucial time to engage the community and provide for the needs of the District to ensure the social-emotional well-being of our entire Tiger family.”
