Dripping Springs Education Foundation PROGRAMS

Innovative Teacher Grants
The Dripping Springs Education Foundation exists to provide every teacher the opportunity to Reach Higher and Inspire others to do the same. One way we encourage this is through Innovative Teaching Grants.  These grants are YOUR OPPORTUNITY to Reach Higher and Inspire! 


Student Leadership Grants

2017-18 DSES SLG WINNERSDSEF has a long tradition of recognizing leadership among our students.  The Student Leadership Grants are designed to foster the development of students’ leadership skills through their efforts to serve their school, our community, or others in the world around us.  Students, together with their faculty sponsors, apply for the grants during the fall semester.

The DSISD Grant helps fund programs that prepare our children for the demands of a modern world, such as the District’s 21st Century Learning Initiatives.

Each year your Education Foundation donates funds to  support Innovative Teaching Grants,  Student Leadership Grants, and an additional grant directly to the district.  It is the generosity of our many donors and volunteers that has made this entirely possible.


Teacher Of The Term

The Dripping Springs Education Foundation is proud to honor DSISD teachers through the Teacher of the Term program. Each term a teacher from one of the schools in our district will be recognized, with each campus determining who, and how, that teacher will be selected.

We are proud to partner with our program sponsor SouthStar Bank!


The fund will provide support for DSISD students whose financial circumstances present a significant challenge, or barrier, to that student’s participation in a school-sanctioned activity or event.

Any eligible student in good standing in the DSISD may apply to the fund for financial support.


Thank You to our Wonderful Sponsors!
