DISTRICT OF INNOVATION UPDATE:
DSISD is reconvening the District of Innovation Committee to review the DOI plan and discuss potential updates. The committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees to either renew or amend the plan at the May 24 board meeting.
Each spring graduating seniors at Dripping Springs High School make a portfolio presentation for assessment before a panel consisting of educators, community members, parents, and professionals. The DSHS senior class will have 500 students presenting portfolios. Volunteers with all types and levels of expertise are being sought to sit on portfolio panels and help in the evaluation process— either as a parent/community member, as a professional, or both. Volunteers are needed to participate in virtual presentations on Zoom (April 21-23; 26-30). More information and a sign-up link can be found here.
