DSISD VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE:
YouTube/Google is in the process of disabling all "brand" accounts associated with K-12/education domains, which is what DSISD uses to post videos. While we continue to work with YouTube/Google to ensure a successful migration of our account, some videos may be intermittently unavailable. At this time, all DSISD videos are available on the DSISD YouTube page.
CLASSLINK SINGLE SIGN-ON FOR STUDENTS:
This year Dripping Springs ISD is introducing ClassLink, a single sign-on platform that will allow students to use one username and password for many applications and resources both at school and at home. This tool, paired with the new Canvas learning management system, will simplify access to resources for students and staff. During the first couple of weeks of school, students will be trained on both of these resources.
APPLICATIONS FOR ADVISORY COMMITTEES:
In DSISD, opportunities exist for community advisory committees that strengthen ties between the school and the community and enhance the core educational process. Committees provide input to the district on a variety of subjects, including district and campus planning, gifted and talented programs, student health initiatives, and facilities recommendations. Additional information is available regarding the opportunities for involvement, as well as the application and selection processes. Individuals interested in serving on an advisory committee for the 2019-20 school year should complete and submit an application by Sept. 6, 2019.
We inspire and equip students to be life-long learners and positive contributors to the world.
We partner with students, parents, and the community to provide a personal and exceptional education for every student.
